Solution

The correct option is C

it is light independent


Dark reaction is a light-independent process in which sugar molecules are formed from carbon dioxide and water molecules. This reaction occurs in the stroma of the chloroplast where it utilizes the products of the light reaction. Since this is not directly dependent on light, it is called as the dark reaction.
