Question

In addition to using numerical prefixes in the general names of sugars to indicate how many carbon atoms are present, we sometimes use the prefixes keto-and aldo-to indicate whether the sugar is a ketone or an aldehyde. For example, the monosaccharide fructose is often called a ke- tohexose to emphasize that it contains six carbons as well as the ketone functional group. For each of the monosaccharides shown in Table, classify the sugars as aldo- hexoses, aldopentoses, ketohexoses, or ketopentoses.
