Solution

The correct option is B Carbohydrates
The digestion of carbohydrates starts in the mouth itself due to the presence of saliva. Saliva is secreted by salivary glands in the mouth and it contains enzyme salivary amylase which digests starch in the mouth into maltose, isomaltose and limit dextrins. About 30% of carbohydrate digestion takes place in mouth. 
Thus, the correct answer is option C.
