No it is absorbed in the large intestine through what is called Villi and then enters the circulatory system.

--The small intestine doesn't absorb nutrients from blood. Rather, it's blood that obtains nutrients from the small intestine. And yes, absorption of nutrients occurs in the small intestine, whereas the large intestine functions for resorption of salts and water and removal of wastes.

Yes, that is correct. The digestive system serves two main functions - to digest macromolecules into smaller products of digestion, and absorption, where these small nutrients are absorbed by the epithelial lining of the villi which line our small intestine, and into the bloodstream.

In the small intestine are tiny little finger-like projections called villi. As the chyme (the liquified food in the stomach) goes through the small intestine, the villi absorb the nutrients. So the nutrients go through the villi and diffuse ( the process used to maintain equilibrium) into the cappilaries(tiny blood vessels only one cell thick). the nutrients then move on to the veins, the blood vessels that take deoxegenated blood back to the heart. the heart pumps the blood and the same blood that has the nutrients in it goes into the pulmonary arteries to the lungs where it picks up oxygen and goes to the heart. the heart then pumps the oxygenated and nutrient rich blood around the body where it eventually gets to the kidneys. the arteries that goes into the kidney splits into capillaries once more. in the capillaries, the blood diffuses with the nephrons(small structures in the kidney that separate nutrients). this means that the blood in the capillaries gives the oxygen to the nephrons and picks up CO2 all the while giving the nutrients to the nephrons. once the nutrients are in the nephrons, the nephrons start splitting them up. all proteins are immediately sent to the blood stream once more so they can be used for energy. the rest of the nutients start travelling through the ureters( tubes that take urine to the bladder). it the body needs one of those nutrients like sugar, fat, sodium, etc, then it takes it to the bloodstream to be used by the body. if it is not needed, it goes to the bladder and comes out in your urine. this is actually true information.

True.

The stomach prepares it (to an isotonic solution),

the small intestine absorbs it, and

the large intestine reabsorbs water.

For what purpose having very long small intestine?

The nutrients from your food are actually absorbed through the small intestines. The longer the intestines, the larger the surface space for those nutrients to be absorbed through. By the time you get to the large intestine, it is all just waste - so the large intestine is short because it is just to dump the garbage.
