    The melting points (in degrees Celsius) of four different unsaturated 18-carbon fatty acids are as such: 70, 20, -5, and -15. Which of the following best describes this trend?

     

    A

    The melting point increases as the number of cis double bonds in the fatty acid increases

    B

    The melting point decreases as the number of cis double bonds in the fatty acid increases

    C

    The melting point increases as the number of trans double bonds in the fatty acid increases

    D

    The melting point is unaffected by the number and types of double bonds present within the fatty acids
