    The answer is d. amino acids. Proteins are macromolecules made up of long chains of amino acids held together by peptide bonds. Each amino acid has a central carbon atom (the alpha carbon) that is bonded to an amino group (-NH2), a carboxyl group (-COOH), a hydrogen atom, and a side chain, or R group, which determines the unique properties of each amino acid. When multiple amino acids bond together through peptide bonds, they form polypeptide chains, which can fold and coil into complex three-dimensional structures to form functional proteins. Therefore, option d, amino acids, is the correct answer.
