I'll admit that I do not have the information in front of me but I believe that the answer is C.  There are tests to determine the order of nucleotides in a sequence of DNA.  There are tests to determine the order of amino acids in a protein.  There are blood tests that a person can take to determine if a person has the specific genes that can lead to a specific genetic disorder.  But I do not believe that you can readily test a polysaccharide for the specific sequence of sugars.  You can determine what sugars are present, but not the sequence.  If another educator has any information to the contrary please post it.
