a) Tertiary structure of protein: It regers to the manner in which the entire protein molecule folds up in the 3d space to produce a specific shape. It represents overall folding of polyptide chains.

b) Essential amino acids : The amino acids which a human body cannot synthesize are called essential amino acids. eg: Lysine, Tryptophan

c) Dissacchorides: Carbohydrates which upon hydrolysis give two molecules of the same or different monosaccharides are called disaccharides.

C_{12}H_{22}O_{11}+H_2O\overset{H^+}{\rightarrow}C_6H_{12}O_6(glucose)+C_6H_{12}O_6(fructose)
