The correct option is D lower rate of photorespiration
RuBisCO has both carboxylase and oxygenase activities, and hence in C3 plants, some of the RuBP undergoes photorespiration instead of entering the Calvin cycle. On the other hand, in C4 plants, the primary carbon acceptor is phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP) and not RuBP. The PEP, on carboxylation, is converted into oxaloacetate inside the mesophyll cells. This oxaloacetate is then converted to malate which is transported into the bundle sheath cells. Here, malate undergoes decarboxylation to release CO2. The walls of the bundle sheath cells are thick, which prevents the escape of CO2. Thus, CO2 accumulates in these cells, and makes all the RuBP present there enter the Calvin cycle and not photorespiration. This makes C4 plants more efficient in photosynthesis.
