Which of the following are the components only of a plant cell?

Glucose and cellulose
Pyruvic acid and glucose
Cellulose and starch
Starch and pyruvic acid
Verified by Toppr

  • Cellulose and starch both are polysaccharide carbohydrates found in plants.
  • A plant cell is characterized by a cellulosic cell wall, which is dead at maturity. Cellulose is made up of glucose molecules.
  • Starch is the storage polysaccharide, i.e. plants store their food in the form of starch. Starch is also made up of glucose.

So, the correct answer is 'Cellulose and starch'
