 # Which classification of lipid consist of hydrophobic and hydrophilic?
A. Sphingophospholipids
B. Glycolipids
C. Phospholipids
D. Phosphoglycerides



The correct answer is C. Phospholipids.

Phospholipids are composed of glycerol or sphingosine, two fatty acids, and phosphoric acid. They are an important component of membranes since they have hydrophobic (fatty acid) and hydrophilic (phosphoric acid) domains. Phosphoglycerides are composed of glycerol, fatty acids and phosphate.
Glycolipids (glycosphingolipids) are composed of carbohydrate, sphingosine, and fatty acid.
