Fats are excellent energy storage molecules because
a) they have a relatively high ratio of energy storing C—H bonds.
b)they have a relatively high ratio of energy storing C=O bonds.
c)they are hydrophobic and do not easily mix with water.
d)they have a relatively high concentration of oxygen atoms, which are very electronegative.
e) they are more difficult to hydrolyze than most other molecules.
