  • Q2
    A student is collecting the gas given off from a plant in bright sunlight at a temperature of 27°C. The gas being collected is probably
    vaporized water.

    carbon dioxide.
    ATP

  • Q3
    If carbon dioxide is removed from a plant’s environment, what would you expect to happen to the plant’s production of sugars?
    Carbon dioxide does not affect the production of sugars in plants.
    More sugars will be produced.
    Fewer sugars will be produced.
    The same number of sugars will be produced but without carbon dioxide.

  • Q4
    Organisms, such as plants, that make their own food are called
    heterotrophs.
    pigments.
    consumers.
    autotrophs.

  • Q5
    What is the correct equation for photosynthesis?
    6O2 + C6H12O6 → 6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy
    6CO2 + 6H2O → 6O2 + C6H12O6 + Energy
    6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy → 6O2 + C6H12O6
    6O2 + C6H12O6 + Energy → 6CO2 + 6H2O

  • Q10
    If the amount of carbon dioxide is reduced in a plant, how does that impact photosynthesis?
    It raises the amount of oxygen generated
    It minimizes the sun's energy during photosynthesis
    no change is identified during photosynthesis
    It reduces the amount of glucose produced
