    The main functional group in sugars is the alcohol (-OH) group.

    The main one in lipids is the ester (COOC) group.

    The two major ones in proteins are amines (NH2) and acids (COOH).

    Yes, they are all classified as macrobiomolecules.

    carbohydrates are quick energy that your body needs instantly like a fast food restaurant

    lipids are fats or greasy substances that are stored in the body for insulation, to control for what comes in and out of the cell, and for cushining

    proteins form muscles and bones and transport things in and out of the cell

    carbs- make energy

    lipids-secondary energy sourse, and insulation

    proteins- carry oxygen, and build muscle

    proteins have peptide bonds between amino acids. The functional groups on the amino acid determine how the protein forms. In general hydrophilc groups get presented to the outside and hydrophobic to the inside.
