Please answer this and explain what us meant by "secondary active transport".

Dear student,
Please find below the answer:

Secondary active transport is a type of transport across the biological membrane in which the energy stored in the electrochemical gradient of an ion is used to drive the transport of another solute against the concentration or electrochemical gradient.

Absorption of glucose occurs through primary active transport as well as secondary active transport. It depends on the concentration of sodium in cells. 

Hope this clears your doubt.
