Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm sorry but I dont know what that means, lol... and it is not b or d or c, I think it's a, because if it's neutral... then it has to be nonpolar if it is not d

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2That is the fatty acid tail so it is neutral, nonpolar and hydrophobic.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Phospholipids consist of a glycerol molecule, two fatty acids, and a phosphate group that is modified by an alcohol. The phosphate group is the negativelycharged polar head, which is hydrophilic. The fatty acid chains are the uncharged, nonpolar tails, which are hydrophobic. Since the tails are hydrophobic, they face the inside, away from the water and meet in the inner region of the membrane. from my notes
