    Giant structures are usually arranged in to giant regular lattices and they are extremely strong because they have many bonds involved.
    Simple molecules are just normal molecules as the name suggests like CO² . though it contains strong covalent bond it still has weak intermolecular forces!!!!

    Hope this helps!!!

    So any formula (as long as it doesnt have ionic bonds) is a simple molecule

    So am i right in saying:

    Simple molecule can be h20, sulfur dioxide, barium oxide, titanium dioxide, titanium peroxide

    Yeah I guess!!!!!
    OK so I will explain a little more for u
    Simple molecular structure: molecules are made up of fixed no. Of atoms joined by covalent bonds
    Giant structure: contain huge no. Of either ions or atoms arranged in some regular way but the no. Of particles isn't fixed!!!!!
    Lol!!!! Copied it from my book !!!
