    1) "A test must not five a positive result due to the presence of some other substance (this would be a false positive). Explain, it terms of their solubility is different solvents and your knowledge f the emulsion test, why you do not see false positives due to:
    -Monosachharides and disaccharides
    -Nucleic acid

    2) Outline a method for a fully quantitative test for reducing sugars.

    3) Suggest how you could distinguish a sample of glucose from a sample of maltose using Benedict's reagent. [Hint: maltose is a disaccharide reducing sugar.]

    4) Suggest improvements to the method for the qualitative sugar tests.

    (If you don't know the reducing/non-reducing sugar tests then don't worry about answering the 4th question.)

    Thanks in advance, I just found out that this is due tomorrow and counts towards my practical pass/fail so I really, REALLY appreciate any help.

    Im stuck on the first question too, have you found out the answer? Any advice would be great. Thank you

    I have to answer these too and have no idea about any of it! Can anyone help us out?

Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
