This is what i found on google “phytoplankton, tiny organisms that live in the ocean, are autotrophs. some types of bacteria are autotrophs. most autotrophs use a process called photosynthesis to make their food.” i hope this you for what your looking for

A monomer made up of a nitrogenous base, a five-carbon sugar, and a phosphate group bonded together.

Wouldn't it be Adenine, Thymine, Cytosine, and Guanine?

The smallest units of DNA are called nucleotides. These are organic molecules that serve as building blocks of DNA and RNA. They are monomers or subunits of nucleic acids like RNA and DNA. It is made up of a nitrogenous base, deoxyribose (five-carbon sugar), and at least one phosphate group. They serve an important role in the metabolism of cells because they carry packets of energy in the form of nucleoside triphosphates (e.g. ATP, GTP, CTP, and UTP). They also play an important factor in cell signaling through enzymatic reactions and productions.

Answer is option a would be definitely right

Explanation;

-Nucleic acids such as DNA and RNA are made up of chains of many repeating units called nucleotides. Nucleotides are made up of a 5-carbon sugar(deoxyribose),a phosphate group and a nitrogenous base bound to the sugar . Adenine makes two bonds with Thyamine whereas Cytosine makes three bonds with Guanine.

-The DNA double helix is held together by two types of bonds, covalent and hydrogen. Covalent bonds occur within each linear strand and strongly bond the bases sugars, and phosphate groups.  Hydrogen bonds occur between the two strands and involve a base from one strand with a base from the second in complementary pairing. These hydrogen bonds are individually weak but collectively quite strong.

A nitrogenous base, phosphate group, 5 carbon sugar

The monomer molecules used to make a double helix molecule of DNA, would be DNA nucleotides. These consist of a 5 carbon deoxyribose sugar, phosphate, and 1 of 4 Nitrogenous Bases
