Solution

The correct option is A catabolism
Catabolism is a process in which large molecules are broken down into smaller molecules. Energy is released in this process.

Anabolism is the formation of complex molecules from simple molecules. Energy is utilised in this process.

A biochemical pathway that involves both catabolism and anabolism is termed as an amphibolic pathway.
