what should we know about the protein subunits homodimer and heterodimer?


You need to know what these terms mean, and how it fits into the picture of whether or not a functional protein has quaternary structure. If you don't have subunits, you don't have quaternary structure, and if you're a dimer (heterodimer or homodimer), by definition you have two subunits.
