RNA

I think that RNA is RiboseNucleic Acid (sorry if the spelling is wrong...). It means that RNA is formed by Ribose glucose which have complete H and OH that surround C atom, Phosphate molecule and one of four nitrogen bases which are Adenine, Guanine, Cytosine and Urasile....

The sugar is not a 'ribose glucose', but a pentose sugar called ribose.
