Polysaccharides

Question: polysaccharides? Polysaccharides are polymers are composed of: a. starch (Maybe this one!) b. amino acids monomers c. monosaccharide monomers d. glycogen monomers (I think this is the MOST correct as monomers make up polymers)

Answer: Its monosaccharide monomers. All monosaccharides are one sugar unit either glucose or fructose. Mono means one, poly means many. Polysaccharide = Many sugars, they're strings of monosaccharides basically And its not glycogen cause glycogen stores polysaccharides and some polysaccharides are plant based and glycogen is animal only based, starch is also a polysaccharide so it can't be that either
