GCSE: Facts On Photosynthesis! Trivia Quiz

Do you know a lot about photosynthesis? Do you believe you can pass this quiz? Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants and some other organisms use sunlight to synthesize their food. It ingests everything from carbon dioxide and water; it is the most important source of oxygen in the atmosphere. It contributes to the carbon cycle on earth. Take this quiz and test your knowledge of photosynthesis.
