[????, ??/???????? --> ????(??????) --> ???????????????] (In answering questions about digestion, we usually cannot directly state that we digest starch into glucose, but starch --> maltose-->glucose. But in this question, we only consider the general results of digestion, therefore we stated that starch has been digested into glucose. In fact, this already includes many processes.) [????????, ??????????????????, ????-->???-->???, ?????? ????????, ?????????????, ??????????/???] - Excess[??]: stored as glycogen in liver & muscles, still excess, it is converted to fat and store under skin [???????????; ???, ??????????] 2.
