Which Of The Following Statements Concerning Saturated Fats Is Not True?

Answer to question 1


The source for the unsaturated fats is plants rather than animals. Therefore, this statement is false.

The structure of the unsaturated fats is so that they cannot be present in the solid-state. Therefore, the unsaturated fats are present in the liquid state at room temperatures.


The unsaturated fats have double bonds present within the chains while the saturated fats do not have double bonds. This implies that the saturated fats have more number of hydrogen atoms attached to the carbon atoms. Therefore, this statement is false.
