Assertion/Reason Type Questions
In the following questions, a statement of Assertion is followed by a statement of Reason.
(a) If both Assertion and Reason are true and the Reason is the correct explanation of the Assertion.
(b) If both Assertion and Reason are true but the Reason is not the correct explanation of the Assertion.
(c) If Assertion is true but Reason is false.
(d) If both Assertion and Reason are false.
Question. Assertion : The atmospheric concentration of CO2 at which photosynthesis just compensates for respiration is referred to as CO2 compensation point.
Reason : The CO2 compensation point is reached when the amount of CO2 uptake is less than that generated through respiration because the level of CO2 in the atmosphere is more than that required for achieving CO2 compensation point.
Question. Assertion : Glycolysis is the first step of respiration in which glucose completely breaks into CO2 and H2O.
Reason : In this process, there is net gain of twenty four molecules of ATP.

(b) triose phosphate is the electron donor while acetaldehyde is the electron acceptor.
(c) triose phosphate is the electron donor while pyruvic acid is the electron acceptor.
(d) there is no electron donor.
Question. Inside an active mitochondrion, most electrons follow which pathway ?
(a) Glycolysis → NADH → Oxidative phosphorylation → ATP → O2
(b) Krebs’ cycle → FADH2 → ETS → ATP
(c) ETS → Krebs’ cycle → ATP → O2
(d) Krebs’ cycle → NADH + H+ → Electron transport chain → O2
Question. Fermentation is represented by the equation
