Solution

  1. Fibers cannot be digested by humans, yet they are essential nutrients.
  2. Fibers are important as they promote movement of materials through the digestive system and thus aid in digestion of foodstuff.
  3. They also help in egestion of undigested substances from the body.
  4. Vegetables, fruits, cereals, etc. are sources of essential nutrients like fibers.
