[????, ??/???????? --> ????(??????) --> ???????????????] (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.)
