    2. Organic molecules contain carbon atoms that are bonded only to hydrogen atoms.
    3. The presence of CH3+ in space tells us that basic building blocks for life exists there.

    Solution: b)

    Statement 2 is incorrect.

    The CH3+ molecule, which is also known as methyl cation, has been detected in space for the first time by the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST).

    Organic molecules are carbon based. They contain carbon atoms bonded to hydrogen atoms but can also bond to other elements, such as oxygen, nitrogen or phosphorus.

    Everything that makes us and all life on Earth is carbon based.

    CH3+ is a very simple organic molecule, just one carbon atom and 3 hydrogen atoms. But it reacts with other molecules to form more complex ones. Its presence in space tells us that basic building blocks for life are out there.
