Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    Why is light important for photosynthesis?
    • A. 

      The light makes the reaction visible.

    • B. 

      The light is absorbed and produces high-energy electrons in the pigments.

    • C. 

      Used directly to make ATP.

    • D. 

      Light is needed to heat the leaf, providing energy for the plant.

    • A. 

      It is green in color.

    • B. 

      It has teeth.

    • C. 

      The cells in the organism contain chloroplasts.

    • D. 

      The organism stays in the light.

  • 9. 
    A water plant is place in sunlight for 6 hours. Bubbles of oxygen gas are observed being released from the plant. Based on this, it can be inferred:
    • A. 

      The plant is performing cellular respiration.

    • B. 

      The plant is releasing energy into the water.

    • C. 

      The plant is producing glucose.

    • D. 

      The plant is in homeostasis.

  • 10. 
    Two plants are used in an experiment. They are both the same species and approximately the same size. Plant A is left in a dark place for 1 week. Plant B is left in front of a sunny window. Both are given the same amount of water. After 1 week, the glucose level was compared between the two plants. What would be the expected results? 
    • A. 

      Both plants contained the same amount of glucose.

    • B. 

      Plant A contained more glucose than plant B.

    • C. 

      Plant B contained more glucose than plant A.

    • D. 

      Neither plant contained glucose.
