Solution

The correct option is A

water into oxygen to generate ATP


The light reaction breaks/splits water molecules to generate oxygen and hydrogen ion/ proton. To break the strong bond of water molecule, immense amount of energy is required, which is obtained from the sunlight. Hydrogen ion/proton which was released by splitting of the water is used to make the energy currency of the cell- ATP.
