Question:

Amylopectin is composed of:

  1. $\alpha-\mathrm{D}-$ glucose, $\mathrm{C}_{1}-\mathrm{C}_{4}$ and $\mathrm{C}_{1}-\mathrm{C}_{6}$ linkages

  2. $\alpha$-D-glucose, $\mathrm{C}_{1}-\mathrm{C}_{4}$ and $\mathrm{C}_{2}-\mathrm{C}_{6}$ linkages

  3. $\beta$-D-glucose, $C_{1}-C_{4}$ and $C_{2}-C_{6}$ linkages

  4. $\beta$-D-Glucose, $\mathrm{C}_{1}-\mathrm{C}_{4}$ and $\mathrm{C}_{1}-\mathrm{C}_{6}$ linkages


Correct Option: 1

Solution:

Amylopetcin is a homopolymer of $\alpha-\mathrm{D}$-glucose where $\mathrm{C}_{1}-\mathrm{C}_{4}$ linkage and $\mathrm{C}_{1}-\mathrm{C}_{6}$ linkage are present.
