Solution

The correct option is A 24
During glycolysis four ATP molecules are produced by direct substrate level phosphorylation two ATP molecules are formed when 1,3 bisphosphoglyceric acid is converted to 3 phosphoglyceric acid catalyzed by the enzyme phosphoglycerate kinase and two when phosphoenol pyruvic acid is converted to pyruvic acid by the enzyme pyruvate kinase.
