Option: 3

(c) The assertion is correct, but the reasoning is incorrect. 

Option: 4

(d) Both the assertion and reason are incorrect.

Answers (1)


Both the claim and the justification are true. The liver, which is essential for the metabolism of fats, produces bile. Bile, which is made by the liver, facilitates fat digestion by emulsifying it and making it easier to digest. When food is consumed, bile is subsequently released into the small intestine after being stored in the gallbladder. Therefore, optimal fat digestion and absorption depend on the liver's ability to produce bile.

Option 1 is the correct answer.
