Solution

The correct option is B One glycerol and three fatty acid molecule
Triglycerides or neutral or true fats are esters of three molecules of fatty acids and one molecule of trihydric alcohol glycerol. Hence, they are called triglycerides.
So, the correct answer is 'One glycerol and three fatty acid molecule'.
