Expert Answer:

Lipids and proteins constitute the major components of plasma membrane. Some of the proteins and lipids may have oligosaccharides, covalently attached to them. There are glycoproteins mainly facing the extracelluar matrix and some cholestrol molecules to maintain the membrane fluidity.
