Because cellulose are present in animal as well as plant.

Plants have cellulose while animals don't. Cellulose in plants is present in the cell wall which is also absent in animals. Some animals like cow can digest cellulose whereas humans cannot.

Because they have some some special organs to digest them and they have these organs because it is the part of their diet.

Hey but animals don't have starch. All the animals store carbohydrates as glycogen but plants store it as starch. Cellulose in plants is the cell wall material which is also absent in animals but partially gets digested in animal gut forming a roughage or what we call as fibres.

I am totally agreed with @SURABHI I think she's totally correct.

Plants have cellulose stored food molecules whereas animals (not all) have glycogen stored in liver.

Plants have many cellulose as compared to animals.

Plants stored glucose in the form of starch and animals in the form of glycogen. So option A must be correct.

I think the cellulose is correct because animal digest cellulose doesn't mean that animals have it there is different b/w you have this that you need this. That's why some animals lack it. So some depend on the plant for it.

Anthony said: (Apr 24, 2017)  
No, option A is wrong because animal & plant have starch but the different is the form in which they're converted but the same starch.

But animals don't have starch, right!
