This question lacks options, the options are;

A. Enlarged molecules

B. Macromolecules

C. Inorganic molecules

Explanation:

As mentioned in this question, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids are the basic biomolecules found in nature. They are all polymeric substances, hence, are made up of smaller units called monomers.

Asides from being biomolecules, these four molecules are also referred to as MACROMOLECULES based on their large size and complex nature. Macromolecules are molecules that are relatively large in size composing of an aggregate of monomer. Hence, these biomolecules are macromolecules.
