Answer Key : (a) -

(a)

Most of the simple sugars (monosaccharides) are absorbed in the stomach and jejunum through the mucosa layer. Around 90% of the water is absorbed in the small intestine through innermost layer cells into the blood capillaries in villi. Alcohol is lipid soluble, its absorption starts in the stomach. However, its absorption is much greater in the small intestine than stomach. Alcohol is absorbed more rapidly in duodenum
