this book lies on pg 48! it says ethanal is a 3 carbon carbohydrate. it is wrong. ethanal is actually a 2 carbon carbohydrate. which is wrong because carbohydrate is not a hydrate of carbon but a polyhydroxyl aldehyde or ketone

I know! There are so many little mistakes in the textbook! It's slightly fustrating they didn't pick these out during the editorial stage.
