Textbook Problem

Which of the following is not a possible value for the number of monosaccharide units in an oligosaccharide?

  1. a. 5
  2. b. 8
  3. c. 12
  4. d. no correct response

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The value which is not possible for the number of monosaccharides units in an oligosaccharide has to be predicted

Concept introduction: Carbohydrates can be classified on the basis of their molecular size such as monosaccharides, disaccharides, oligosaccharides and polysaccharides.  Those carbohydrates which contain three to ten monosaccharide units are known as oligosaccharides.  These monosaccharide units are covalently bonded to each other.

Explanation

Reason for correct option:

The structure of maltotriose is shown below.  It contains three monosaccharide units.

Oligosaccharides contain only three to ten monosaccharide units.  Therefore, the value which is not possible for the number of monosaccharides units in an oligosaccharide is 12
