During which process is energy released? (a) Respiration (b) Feeding (c) Digestion (d) Growth

The energy is released during respiration.

The energy released during respiration is stored in the form of Adenosine Triphosphate(ATP)

Adenosine Triphosphate(ATP)

During cellular respiration, glucose is broken down in the presence of oxygen to produce carbon dioxide and water. The energy released during the reaction is captured by the energy-carrying molecule ATP (adenosine triphosphate). Adenosine triphosphate is the primary energy carrier in living things. The removal of one phosphate group releases 7.3 kilocalories per mole, or 30.6 kilojoules per mole, under standard conditions.

Hence, the correct option is (a)
