    Answer:

    Carbohydrate (monosaccharide)

    Explanation:

    Carbohydrates are one of the four biological molecules in nature. Carbohydrates are structurally composed of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen elements. However, these elements (C,H,O) are present in each carbohydrate in the ratio 1:2:1 respectively.

    As stated in this question, glucose is an organic molecule made up of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen in the 1:2:1 proportion, hence, it is a CARBOHYDRATE. Since glucose possess one sugar component, it is classified as a MONOSACCHARIDE with a chemical formula C6H12O6.
