Chylomicron is:

b) A lipoprotein containing a very large proportion of lipids to protein and carrying most cholesterol from the liver to the tissues

c) A lipoprotein that contains relatively high amounts of cholesterol and is associated with an increased risk of atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease. It is also called beta-lipoprotein

d) Large lipoprotein particle that is created by the absorptive cells of the small intestine. It transports lipids to adipose tissue where they are broken down by lipoprotein lipase
