Which is not true about polymers?

$\begin{array}{1 1}(a)\;\text{Polymers donot carry any charge}\\(b)\; \text{Polymers have high viscosity}\\(c)\;\text{Polymers scatter light}\\(d)\;\text{Polymers have low molecular weight}\end{array}$

1 Answer

A polymer sample contains chains of varying lengths and therefore molecular mass is always expressed as an average.The molecular weight of polymers are very high,due to which they are expressed in two ways:-
Number average molecular mass and weight average molecular mass
Hence (d) is the correct answer.
