    Glycoproteins contain a variety of shapes and subunits that contribute to the overall complexity of the molecule

    Explanation:

    Let's recall that:

    proteins promotes higher and stronger immune responses than carbohydrates e. g. starch.

    Also considering the molecular mass

    Molecular mass of Glycoproteins is higher than starch as this will promote a greater and effective immune response.
