Is the following molecular formula for Sugar can be written as

H22C12O11 or

O11C12H22 or

O11H22C12 or

C12O11H22 or

H22O11C12 or

instead of C12H22O11?

Logically they can be written as mentioned above?

If Not, Why?

There can be many more examples similar to above.

Thanks & Regards,

Another example could be for Sulphuric acid having molecular formula as H2SO4.

This can be SH2O4,O4H2S,H2O4S, SO4H2,O4SH2.
