Glycolysis Quizzes & Trivia

What do you know about glycolysis metabolic pathway? A metabolic pathway is a series of steps that help convert molecules into more readily usable materials. This being said glycolysis is a pathways that converts glucose into pyruvate and hydrogen and it takes part in three stages. Do take up the quiz below and get to see how well you understand the whole process and what it involves. All the best as you tackle it!

    NAD+ is a __________, its reduced form is _____________.
    • A. 

      Electron carrier, NADPH

    • B. 

      Electron carrier, NADH

    • C. 

      Reducing agent, NAD

    • D. 

      Transport protein, NADH

  • 3. 
    What is the role of oxygen in cellular respiration?
    • A. 

      It is reduced in glycolysis as glucose is oxidized

    • B. 

      It provides electrons to the ETC

    • C. 

      It provides the activation energy needed for oxidation to occur

    • D. 

      It is the final electron acceptor for the ETC

    • E. 

      It combines with the carbon removed during the citric acid cycle to form carbon dioxide

  • 4. 
    How many molecules of carbon dioxide are generated for each molecule of acetyl CoA introduced into the citric acid cycle?
    • A. 

      1

    • B. 

      2

    • C. 

      3

    • D. 

      4

  • 5. 
    Which of the following reactions is incorrectly paired with its location?
    • A. 

      ATP synthysis-inner membrane of the mitochondrion, matrix, and cytosol

    • B. 

      Fermentation - cell cytosol

    • C. 

      Glycolysis - cell cytosol

    • D. 

      Substrate level phosphorylation - cytosol & matrix

    • E. 

      Citric acid cycle - cristae of mitochondrion

  • 6. 
    • A. 

      It relies on fermentation, which is characteristic of archaea & bacteria

    • B. 

      It is found only in prokaryotes, whereas eukaryotes use their mitochondria to produce ATP

    • C. 

      It produces much less ATP than does the electron transport chain & chemiosmosis

    • D. 

      It relies totally on enzymes that are produced by free ribosomes, and bacteria have only free ribosomes and no bound ribosomes

    • E. 

      It is nearly universal, is located in the cytosol, and does not involve oxygen

  • 7. 
    Cyanide is a poison that blocks the passage of electrons along the ETC.  Which of the following is a metabolic effect of this poison?
    • A. 

      No proton gradient would be produced, and ATP synthesis would cease

    • B. 

      NADH supplies would be exhausted, and ATP synthesis would cease

    • C. 

      Alcohol would build up in the cells

    • D. 

      Electrons are passed directly to oxygen, causing cells to explode

    • E. 

      The pH of the intermembrane space becomes much lower than normal

  • 8.
