Answer:

#2*mol#, #4*mol#, and #2*mol# of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms respectively.

Explanation:

And had the question asked how many #C,H,O# atoms in a #"dozen"# such molecules, I think you would have been able to answer #24#, #48#, and #24# atoms respectively.

And the mole is simply a (much) larger number, #6.022xx10^23*mol^-1#, where 1 mole of #C# specifies a mass of #12.01*g#. Capisce?
