Dear student 
The lymphatic system has multiple inter related functions :
1) it is responsible for the removal of interstitial fluid from tissues.
2) it absorbs and transports fatty acids and fats as chyle from the digestive system
3) it transports white blood cells to and from the lymph nodes into the bones.
4) the lymph transports antigen presenting cells, such as dendrite cells to the lymph nodes where an immune response is stimulated.

So, the correct option is 'Option C'

The answer is c and d.
Fats are a type of lipid and the lymphatic system does not function in the absorption of these nutrients.
