Solution

The correct option is D

Glycogen and fats are energy reserves and there is no liver formation in embryo stage, due to this reason glycogen and fats are present in placenta.


During the first two months, the developing human is referred to as an embryo. The embryo has three layers from which all body organs develop. During the second trimester the developing human is referred to as a fetus. Until liver formation happens, glycogen and fat reserves are used as energy source from placenta.
