The answer is D.

Glycogen is a polymer (and a polysaccharide) that serves as the secondary long-term energy storage in animal and fungal cells, with the primary energy stores being held in adipose tissue. Glycogen has a similar structure to starch, a less branched glucose polymer in plants, and is sometimes referred to as animal starch.
