Assertion (A): Digestion breaks large complex molecules to simple smaller molecules which can be easily absorbed.
Reason (R): Digestion is necessary for the absorption of all molecules.
Digestion is a process of breaking down complex , water insoluble molecules into simpler , water soluble molecules so that absorption can take place.
Digestion is not necessary for absorption of all molecules because some molecules like glucose can be readily absorbed and don’t need to be broken down.
- The assertion is True
- The reason is False
So, the correct option is (c)
