Starch and glycogen are the storage carbohydrates in the plants and animals respectively. On the other hand, cellulose and chitin are found in the cell wall of the plants and fungi. Since these provide structural support to the cells, therefore they are known as structural carbohydrates.

So, the correct option is 'Cellulose and chitin'.
