CORRECT

Absorption of Monosaccharides: Absorption of glucose and galactose occur through active transport. Sodium pump on the cell membrane helps in its active transport. Fructose is absorbed by facilitated diffusion. Glucose, galactose and fructose are absorbed into the blood capillaries. Galactose is the most rapidly transported monosaccharide.

Absorption of amino acids: Amino acids are absorbed by active transport coupled with active sodium transport. They also enter the bloodstream.
