You can use process of elimination for these, in a way. While ring structures are common of sugars (like glucose) and starches, neither has any phosphate in their molecular structures.
This leaves Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) and Adenosine diphosphate (ADP). If the model shown has 2 phosphate molecules attached to it, which suffix fits : di (meaning 2) or tri (meaning 3)?

so its c ?
Yes; does the process to that answer make sense though?
2 Phospates = A_P
Its easy...That's Adenosine Diphosphate(ADP).....cause,it has Adenine(left most), Ribose sugar(middle) and 2 phosphates(2 p's)....Adenine and Ribose sugar makes Adenosine.And the 2 phosphates are Diphosphates...so,clearly,its ADP....
