Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Which of the following is NOT an end product of photosynthesis?
    • A. 

      Oxygen

    • B. 

      Water

    • C. 

      Glucose

    • D. 

      Starch

  • 2. 
    What is the function of water in photosynthesis?
    • A. 

      Provides oxygen

    • B. 

      Provides hydrogen and electrons

    • C. 

      Allows enzymes absorb carbon dioxide

  • 3. 
    In stage 1 of photosynthesis, blank is captured from sunlight.
  • 4. 
    In stage 2 of photosynthesis, light energy is converted to chemical energy which is temporarily stored in blank and the energy carrier molecule blank. Put comma between answers.
  • 5. 
    Many molecules that participate in photosynthesis are embedded in the blanks. (hint: its two words) 
  • 6. 
    In stage 3 of photosynthesis, the chemical energy stored in the blank and blank, powers the formation of blank compounds, using blank.
  • 7. 
    The series of molecules through which excited electrons are passed along the thylakoid membrane are called blanks.
  • 8. 
    Some electron transport chains contain a blank that acts as a membrane pump. Excited electrons that pass through this pump blank some of their energy, but that energy is later used to pump blank ions into the thylakoid.
