    Option (B).

    Explanation:

    Carbohydrates is one of the most important biomolecule that plays an important role in the living organism. Carbohydrates are made of monosaccharides sugars linked through glycosidic linkage.

    Starch is made of the glucose residues in which the linear glucose residues are linked through alpha glycosidic linkages. Cellulose is the polymers of glucose linked through the beta glycosidic linkage. Hence, they are differ in the glycosidic linkage.

    Thus, the correct answer is option (B).
