Solution

Microbodies are classified based on the enzymes found inside the organelle. They are:
  1. Peroxisomes: they are usually involved in the oxidation and breakdown of many large molecules. They contain peroxides.
  2. Glyoxysomes: these are found in plants and mold and help to convert stored lipids into carbohydrates through different oxidation processes for energy.
  3. Glycosomes: they contain enzymes that break-down complex carbohydrate molecules such as glycogen to glucose.
