Functions of villi: 

The finger- like projections known as villi, drastically increase the surface area of the small intestine for greater absorption of the digested food. 

Function of intestinal juice present in the small intestine: 

The intestinal juice secreted by the walls of the small intestine breaks down starch and carbohydrates into simple sugars. These sugars are known as glucose. It also converts the proteins into amino acids.
