Your Answer
A

water, energy production

Your Answer
B

photolysis/splitting of water, trapping solar energy

Correct Answer
C

photolysis/splitting of water, carbohydrate formation

Your Answer
D

carbohydrate formation, energy release


Solution

The correct option is B

photolysis/splitting of water, carbohydrate formation


During photosynthesis, oxygen is produced by photolysis or splitting of water and carbon dioxide is utilised for carbohydrate production. The process of photosynthesis takes place in the chloroplast of the plant cells. Chlorophyll helps in trapping sunlight and the energy is used to split the water molecule. This process is called photolysis. The end product is oxygen which is released into the atmosphere and hydrogen is used to form carbohydrates along with carbon dioxide.
