3 True/False questions
Fats → organic compound consisting of a three-carbon backbone (glycerol) attached to three fatty acids
Steroids → a subgroup of the steroids and an important class of organic molecules. They occur naturally in plants, animals, and fungi, with the most familiar type of animal sterol being cholesterol. Cholesterol is vital to cellular function, and a precursor to fat-soluble vitamins and steroid hormones.
phospholipids → Have two, rather than three, fatty acids attached to a molecule of glycerol
