Maybe, if you were more concrete with your age, that could help ;)
Anyway, I was the same. I remember, we had some calculation of molecular formula and the result was C6H12O6, so I did respond, it's probably glucose.
But when will you be more experienced, you will be, hopefully, more aware of such quick judgement. Yes, it is probably Glc, as it is probably for some school class, but that doesn't change anything about that there are 2^4 of possible monosacharides (yeah, surprisingly, you did not mention, it's D-Glc, so it's only 2^3)...


I apologize for jumping, but as i have speculated it was in no form an attack on you.

I misread the question. I thought it asked for an example or two rather than making predictions about what it may be, in which has been said a few times: a monosaccharide. But i like the word hexose better so i will use that.

Yes you are correct in what you said:

'But when will you be more experienced, you will be, hopefully, more aware of such quick judgement.

Why do you think, it has to be hexose?

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
