    The correct option is A) In the bonds between atoms


    Polysaccharide can be described as long chain molecules which are made from carbohydrate molecules. Polysaccharides form as a result of glycosidic linkage. Glycosidic linkages can be described as covalent bonds which join carbohydrates to another carbohydrate or other atoms which might or might not be a carbohydrate. Hence, the energy is stored in the glycosidic bonds in between atoms. Breaking this bond releases energy.
