Amylopectin is a linear as well as branched chain polymer. 

It is a part of starch. It is composed of following linkages:

(\alpha -D-glucose,C_{1}-C_{4}\: \: and\: \: C_{1}-C_{6}\: \: linkages)

\therefore option (1) is correct.


Option 1)

\alpha-D-glucose,C_{1}-C_{4}\: \: and\: \: C_{1}-C_{6}\: \: linkages

Option 2)

\beta -D-glucose,C_{1}-C_{4}\: \: and\: \: C_{2}-C_{6}\: \: linkages

Option 3)

\beta -D-glucose,C_{1}-C_{4}\: \: and\: \: C_{1}-C_{6}\: \: linkages

Option 4)

\alpha -D-glucose,C_{1}-C_{4}\: \: and\: \: C_{2}-C_{6}\: \: linkages
