The question says proteins are natural condensation polymers.
State what is meant by a condensation polymer.

The mark scheme says:

monomers join/bond/add/react/form polymer/form chain
AND another product/small molecule e.g. H2O/HCl


I don't understand it :-( could someone reword that into a sentence for me (I know I might sound real dumb haha)

Polymer is something made of small, repeating units, right?

When polymer is produced together with some side product (like water) - one side product molecule per one bond created in the polymer molecule - we call this process condensation.
