Solution

The correct option is D Vitamins
Vitamins are not digested but absorbed in the gastrointestinal tract. Carbohydrate, protein and fats require digestion before they can be absorbed in monomer form. Fat soluble vitamins are absorbed along with dietary fat, whereas water soluble vitamins are absorbed by passive diffusion. Vitamin $$B_{12}$$ is absorbed with Intrinsic factor by forming a complex.
