Solution

The correct option is C Sucrose
Mutarotation is shown by the saccharides which have free OH group at the anomeric carbon. In sucrose, due to the formation of a glycosidic bond between the anomeric carbons on glucose and fructose, the availability of the hydroxyl group is eliminated. Hence, it does not undergo mutarotation.
