$(a)\;Disaccharides\qquad(b)\;Monosaccharides\qquad(c)\;Tetrasaccharides\qquad(d)\;Polysaccharides$

In general , monosaccharides and oligosaccharides are crystalline solids , soluble in water and sweet in taste . Therefore , these are collectively called sugars .
Polysaccharides are amorphous , insoluble in water and tasteless and are therefore known as non - sugars .
