It is indeed a weird question.  ???

A compound is a molecule that consists of two or more different elements, whereas a molecule is two or more elements joining. I'm also trying to understand the wording of the question, but I'm going to say False.
-Firstly, sulfur dioxide is a compound of atoms.
-Secondly, its components are a sulfur atom and oxygen molecule, so it's not a compound of two molecules.
Hope this helps :)

Thanks MisterNeo!
I originally put false down and had a similar answer to your one but most of my friends put true and i started doubting my answer. your explanation is good and i understood it the first time i read it.
Thanks you very much!
