I am new to botany  and would appreciate if somebody could explain the following:

I understand that plants make agreat variety of compounds from  raw materials.  Most of biological compounds fall into just four caterories: carbohydrates,lipids, proteins and nucleic acids.

Given that this is correct, does this mean that all these comounds essentially consist of the same elements and are just ISOMERS ?

Please could somebody explain this.
