Are hydrocarbons in the carboxyl group?
This wording of this question sounds like you may be confused. In the term "carboxyl group", group refers to a specific group of atoms (COOH), not to a group of similar types of compounds. Since hydrocarbons by definition contain only carbon and hydrogen, a hydrocarbon cannot contain a carboxyl group.

What does ether mean?
An ether is a type of organic compound that contains an ether group. An ether group consists of 2 alkyl or aryl groups connected by an oxygen atom. An alkyl group is essentially an alkane (fully saturated carbon chain with only SINGLE bonds) with a missing hydrogen at one end. An aryl group is an aromatic ring (a ring of partially-saturated carbon molecules with alternating single and double bonds). An ether can have 2 alkyl groups, 1 alkyl group and one aryl group, or 2 aryl groups.
Asked in Chemistry, Hydrocarbons
Is a hydrocarbon polar or nonpolar?
Hydrocarbons are usually nonpolar, since their bonds line up opposite each other to cancel out any dipole moment. But in small hydrocarbons that have an alcohol group (OH), which is a polar group, a small dipole moment can result thus making the hydrocarbon polar. But in large chains hydrocarbons containing one alcohol group, the size of the hydrocarbon cancels any polarity resulting from the group out, thus the hydrocarbon is nonpolar.
