Serin, threonine, Tyrosine, each contain polar hydroxyl groups that can participate in hydrogen bond formation the side chain of asparagine and glutamates each contain a Carbonyl group and an amide group, both of which can also participate in a hydrogen bond.

It is because of the presence of N atom in all these amino acids which is more electronegative, suitable to bind with H atom to form H bond by strong dipole dipole attraction due to electron with drawing properties of electronegative atom.

Because asparagine and glutamine have amide group which is hydrophilic. Also, the cooh group in aspartic acid is hydrophilic.

How are all these Amino acids are gonna be able to form a hydrogen bond with their side group.

I think it's because all these amino acids are polar.

I think the amino acid that is given is not polar.
