A
Osmosis
loader
B
Passive transport
loader
C
Active transport
loader
D

loader

Solution

The correct option is C Active transport
The monosaccharides glucose and galactose are transported into the epithelial cells by common protein carriers via secondary active transport I.e  by co-transport with sodium ions. The monosaccharides leave these cells via facilitated diffusion and enter the capillaries through intercellular clefts.
Thus C is the correct option.
