Answer

The correct options are
1. Insulin
2. Glucagon

Glucagon is a hormone produced by the alpha-cells of the Islets of Langerhans. It increases the amount of glucose in the blood by converting glycogen into glucose when needed.

Insulin is a hormone produced by the beta-cells of the Islets of Langerhans. It lowers the amount of glucose in the blood by converting excess glucose into glycogen, which can then be stored in the liver and muscles.
