General Studies I
Each of the following 3 questions consists of two statemetns, one labelled as ‘Assertion (A)’ and the other as ‘Reason (R)’. You are to examine these two statements carefully and select the answers to these items using the code given below.
Reason (R): Liver produces two important fat-digesting enzymes. Code:
Assertion (A): In human body, liver has an important role in fat digestion
A both A and R are individually true and R is the correct explanation of A B Both A and R are individually true but R is not the correct explanation of A C A is true but R is false D A is false but R is true
Reason (R): Liver produces two important fat-digesting enzymes.
• Bile contains bile acids, which are critical for digestion and absorption of fats and fat-soluble vitamins in the small intestine. Many waste products,
• including bilirubin, are eliminated from the body by secretion into bile and elimination in feces.
• Lipase is an enzyme that is used by the body to break down dietary fats into an absorbable form.
Where is it found?
Most of the body’s lipase is manufactured in the pancreas, although some of it is secreted in the saliva, as well. Pancreatin contains lipase along with two other groups of enzymes: proteases and amylase
