Solution

The correct option is D Lipase
Steapsin is the other name for the enzyme lipase. This name is used to refer the lipase enzyme in the pancreatic juice. This is one of the digestive enzymes which is responsible for the digestion of fat. The enzyme catalyzes the breakdown of the fats into fatty acids and glycerol. The bile emulsifies the fat and then the breakdown of fats is carried out by the pancreatic lipase.
Thus, the correct answer is option C.
