Solution

The correct option is B False
The small intestine is the site for the complete digestion of the carbohydrate, proteins and fats.
It secretes intestinal juices which further breaks down the food into absorbable nutrients as:
  • Carbohydrates get broken down into glucose.
  • Proteins are broken down into amino acids.
  • Fats are broken down into fatty acids and glycerol.
