Correct choice is (a) True

The best explanation: Ligninolytic enzymes are a ubiquitous group of enzymes found in plants, bacteria, insects, and fungi. These are extracellular glycoproteins composed of a monomeric protein along with a sugar component. Lignin degradation is done by the synergistic actions of oxidoreductases like ligninolytic enzymes.
