    3> There is no "official" nor universal definition of organic compounds.

    Go with your text, but remember texts vary.

    Most would not consider as organic the following:
    sodium carbonate
    silicon carbide
    There is a great debate over CO, but most consider it inorganic.

    Remember, don't argue with your teacher on these, as there is no universal agreement, so you will lose.
