    B. To test for fat
    Explanation
    The brown paper bag test was used to test for fat because fat leaves a translucent mark on brown paper.

This test was commonly used in the past to determine the fat content in food before more sophisticated methods were available.

Sugar is a simple carbohydrate that is quickly broken down by the body for immediate energy, while starch is a complex carbohydrate that takes longer to break down and provides sustained energy. Carbohydrates are found in various foods such as fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes. They are an essential part of a balanced diet and should be consumed in moderation.
