#### Explanation:

Simple organic molecules are characterized by the presence of $C , H , N ,$ and $O$ atoms. A few examples are.........

$C {H}_{3} O H$, $\text{methanol}$;

${H}_{2} C = O$, $\text{acetaldehyde}$;

${H}_{4} C$, $\text{methane}$;

$H C \left(= O\right) O H$, $\text{formic acid}$;

${H}_{2} N C {H}_{2} C \left(= O\right) O H$, $\text{glycine}$.

There are a lot of other examples.................
