  1. Please type your subject in the School Subject box. Any other words, including obscure abbreviations, are likely to delay responses from a teacher who knows that subject well.

  2. "largely" is not a chemical term, I can not imagine a chemistry or nursing teacher using this term.

    Vitamins A, D, E, and K are fat soluble vitamins. http://www.ext.colostate.edu/pubs/foodnut/09315.html Viatmin Bcomplex and vitamin C are not stored in the body (mostly water), therefore, they must be replenished daily. They are obviously water soluble.

    Again, I have no idea what "largely soluble" means.
