Expert Answer

Step 1

(a)Benedict’s reagent is used for the detection of the presence of reducing sugars.

If a solution turns orange-red when mixed with Benedict’s reaction and heated for 5min., then it is a reducing sugar.

Glucose is a reducing sugar.

Step 2

(b)Iodine test is used for the detection of the presence of starch.

A solution that turns blue-b...
