Q 8.Why do we get instant energy from glucose?
Answer:Glucose is a simple sugar. Carbohydrates, when consumed, have to digest in glucose. Since glucose can be easily absorbed in the blood, it provides energy to the body. Therefore, when glucose is taken directly, it does not digest and thus acts as an immediate source of energy.

mouth and digestive system absent in amoeba.
