Solution

The correct option is D nucleic acids into smaller components
A nuclease is an enzyme that cleaves the phosphodiester bonds between nucleotides of nucleic acids. 

A nucleotide, the monomer of nucleic acids, is made of  a nitrogen base, a sugar and a phosphate group.

Sugars bigger than monosachharides are digested with the help of the respective carbohydrases.

Proteases degrade proteins into smaller peptides or amino acids.
