Q. What are the proteins? How can the protein diversity of living beings be described?

Proteins are molecules made of sequences of amino acids bound by a peptide bond.

The genetic code codifies twenty diverse amino acids that can compose proteins. So there are various combinations of amino acid which can form polypeptide chains and for this reason protein molecules can be immensely diverse.
