Solution

The correct option is A In small intestine
Food is completely digested in the small intestine. Proteins are digested into amino acids. Fats are digested into fatty acids and glycerol. Carbohydrates are digested into glucose. The nutrients in the digested food is then absorbed by the numerous small finger-like projections called villi present on the inner wall of the small intestine.
