Correct option: All these


The fatty acids that cannot be synthesized by the body and therefore should be supplied through the diet are referred to as essential fatty acids (EFA). Linoleic acid and linolenic acid are essential. Some workers regard arachidonic acid as an EFA although it can be synthesized from linoleic acid.
