Question

What is the function of nitrogen in plant metabolism?


  1. None of these

  2. Capture of sunlight for food production

  3. Completion of life cycle

  4. growth of new leaves


Solution

The correct option is D

growth of new leaves


Metabolism is the chemical process that occurs within a living organism in order to maintain life. Nitrogen is a part of every protein in the plant so it is required for virtually every process from growing new leaves to defending against pests. Nitrogen is a part of the chlorophyll molecule, which gives plants their green colour and is involved in preparing food for the plant through photosynthesis.
