A description of a protein mentions its amino acids, what level is it most likely talking about?

this like died so i guess i'll pick it up:
what are the four types of protein structure?

Primary secondary tertiary and quaternary(sidechains)
What are three forces that drive protein folding?

im guessing but: hydrophobic forces, formation of hydrogen bonds and formation of van der waals forces?

I was thinking of disulfide bonds or maybe like enthalpy and entropy but that works too

If you're gonna answer please post a question
Where are charged amino acids usually found in a folded protein?

Charged amino acids are polar, thus hydrophilic and normally located on the outside surface of the protein.
