In platyhelminthes...is digestion intracellular or extracellular?

Please find below the solution to the asked query

Platyhelminthes have incomplete digestive system i.e they have only one opening (mouth) and lack anus. They posses both extracellular and intracellular types of digestion. 
They food is taken into â€‹gastrovascular cavity where enzymes are released. The enzymes break down food into simpler form. This is called extracellular digestion. Then, they absorb food into vacuole present inside the cells where food is further broken down. This is called intracellular digestion.

Hope this information will clear your doubts about the platyhelminthes​.
