How does one differentiate between inorganic and organic bases?

Hi,
I believe that organic based contain carbon, while inorganic bases do not have carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen at the same time (I.e. h2O which is inorganic).

Organic ones contain carbon, while inorganic ones do not contain carbon.

Organic compounds always include carbon, while typically inorganic compounds do not. Also, most organic compounds contain C-H bonds. Keep in mind that simply containing carbon is not a sufficient explanation for a compound being organic.

Molecules associated with living organisms are organic. These include nucleic acids, fats, sugars, proteins, enzymes, and hydrocarbon fuels.
Some Examples of ORganic Compounds:
DNA
Table sugar or sucrose, C12H22O11
Benzene, C6H6
Methane, CH4
Ethanol or grain alcohol, C2H6O

Some Examples of Inorganic Compounds (can contain Carbon)
Table salt or sodium chloride, NaCl
Carbon dioxide, CO2
Diamond (pure carbon)
Silver
Sulfur
