    I was thinking b.DNA is to RNA. But i think im wrong.

    how are amino acids and proteins related?

    Proteins are long chains of amino acids joined by peptide linkages

    so out of these ones, which one is inked together to make large chains of those subunits?

    So..DNA is to RNA? Because they are both nucleic acids. Regarding structure, DNA and RNA are similar because they are both built of nucleotides, structures consisting of one nucleobase, a sugar (ribose or deoxyribose respectively) and a phosphate group. For both of them, their function is mainly containing information in the form of code, using 4 different bases. They both use adenine, cytosine and guanine. The fourth base differs, DNA uses thymine while RNA uses uracil.

    what you said is true, but you're missing the point of the question, which is basically asking you to make a comparison and find the relation. Amino acids are monomers of a polymer that is a protein. DNA is a polymer of nucleotides, which is not one of the options. The correct answer would be "simple sugars to cellulose" because simple sugars are monomers to a polymer, that is, cellulose (as well as starch and other complex carbohydrates).
