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)

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.
