Yes, as it is composed of three monomers; a sugar, a nitrogenous base and a phosphate group.

A nucleic acid is a macromolecule composed of nucleotide chains. In biochemistry these molecules carry genetic information or form structures within cells.

No, a nucleic acid is a nucleic acid. Nucleic acids are a class of macromolecules of their own.

A nucleic acid is a macromolecule composed of chains of monomeric nucleotides. In biochemistry these molecules carry genetic information or form structures within cells. The most common nucleic acids are deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA). 2 examples of nucleic acids as said before are DNA and RNA.

The four biopolymer macromolecules are nucleic acids, proteins, carbohydrates and lipids. An example of a protein is myoglobin. Glucose is a carbohydrate, butter is an example of fat and DNA is a nucleic acid.

Deoxypentose nucleic acid is a former term for deoxyribose nucleic acid. It is the same.

You mean "what type of macromolecule is genetic material?" DNA is deoxyribo nucleic acid. The structure is compsed of Nucleotide monomers , so the macromolecular type would be nucleic acids

DNA and RNA are made up of nucleic acids.

An example of a nucleic acid is

Adenovirus have an icosahedral capsid with a glycoprotein spike at each vertex and has DNA as their genome. RNA is not an virus, but a macromolecule (nucleic acid)

Deoxyribose nucleic acid (DNA) and ribonucleic acid (RNA) are examples of nucleic acids.

No. Amino acids are monomers of proteins and nucleic acids is a macromolecule.
