B. Chained together to make proteins
hello there hester , i would say needed to form cell membranes
The answer to the question that is being presented above would be the need to form cell membranes. Lipids are important to living things for all of the following reasons (whatever reasons you have in the choices left), except that they need to form cell membranes.
I am thinking it is B) chained together to form proteins. I took a biology class last year and I don't ever remember being told that lipids bond together to form a protein. I know that peptide bonds link together to make a protein.

I hope I was of help to you 🙂
B)chained together to form proteins.
It is not lipids which are chained together to form proteins, it is amino acids which are chained together to form proteins. Proteins are the polymers of small monomeric units named as amino acids. Rest of the options are true of lipids i.e. option A which says that they are needed to form cell membranes because cell membranes are made up of phospholipids which are the derivatives of lipids. Option C is also correct for lipids because lipids which are present in the adipose tissue of arctic animals provide them insulation from extremely harsh cold weather. Option D is also true for lipids because lipids are stored in the fat stores by the hibernating animals as a source of energy.
Proteins are not made of lipids chained together but rather of amino acids chained together. Lipids are made of fatty acid chains joined to various molecules - like glycerol and phosphate that make phospholipids - Phospholipids make up the cell membrane of most cells. Fats are deposited under the dermis of the skin for insulation and this layer is thicker in animals that live in the cold regions. During starvation, these fats are taken from their reserves and broken down to provide energy for the body.
Chained together to form proteins.
Lipids include fats, steroids, phospholipids, and waxes, also lipids play an important role in living organisms. some of their main functions include energy storage, hormones, and cell membranes.
