The correct answer is option A - Oxygen and glucose Photosynthesis is the process by which plants and other photoautotrophs convert light energy into chemical energy. Photosynthesis begins with the intake of carbon dioxide and water combine with light energy from the sun to make glucose (food for the organism) and oxygen (released as a by-product).

Photosynthesis occurs in the chloroplast, which is an organelle found in the cells of green plants and autotrophs. The chemical reaction of photosynthesis is represented as: 6 C02 + 6 H20 + light -> C6 H12 O6 + 6 O2 Six molecules of carbon dioxide and six molecules of water are required to produce one molecule of glucose and six molecules of oxygen.

The correct answer to this question is A, oxygen and glucose. Photosynthesis is a process plants and organisms use. In this process, light energy is converted into chemical energy. This energy helps fuel the activities of the organism. Plants use this energy to product glucose and oxygen.

The chemical reaction for photosynthesis is 6 C02 + 6 H20 + light -> C6 H12 O6 + 6 O2. In words, this reaction is carbon dioxide + water + light products glucose + oxygen. The reactions of photosynthesis occurs in light and dark stages and light isn't required for this process to occur.
