    Lipoproteins

    Explanation:

    As the very low-density lipoproteins (VLDLs) deposit triglycerides in the cells, they become denser and are  classified as low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) is the correct statement

    • Lipoprotein is a substance that carries cholesterol throughout the system which are of 2 main kinds:
    • Low-density lipoprotein (LDL) which is often called the bad cholesterol

    • High-density lipoprotein (HDL)
      which is often called the good cholesterol
    • Very low-density lipoproteins (VLDLs) consist of triglycerides, some cholesterol molecules, and less protein; less dense than most lipoproteins because of its high lipid composition
    • Low-density lipoproteins (LDLs) contains less lipid and more protein in comparison to VLDL, its density is greater; consists of more cholesterol than triglycerides and protein
