Solution

The correct option is A

True


Digestive juices convert complex food substances into simpler ones. Saliva contains the enzyme amylase, which is capable of breaking down starch into simpler sugars such as maltose and dextrin that can be further broken down in the small intestine. Hence, the statement is correct.
