Solution

The correct option is D Large intestine
Small intestine receives secretion from liver, pancreas and intestine. Thus, it is the site for the complete digestion of carbohydrates, proteins and fats.
In small intestine, the digested food is absorbed through finger like projections called villi and undigested food is pushed into large intestine.
Then, water and minerals are absorbed from the undigested food in large intestine.
