"Would it be possible to have an addition polymer synthesized from a monomer that has only single bonds? Why or why not?"

==> I know that an addition polymer can only be synthesized from a monomer that has double bonds, but my textbook did not explain why. Can someone explain this to me please? Thanks so much!!!!

    In chemistry, how is a monomer related to a polymer? Think of a chain: Each link is a monometer, as the links are joined, you have a chain which represents the polymer.
