There are two phase in photosynthesis one is light reaction and other is:Photosynthesis in Higher Plants MCQ/Objective questions Chapter 13 Biology

  • a. Dark reaction
  • b. Chemical decomposition
  • c. Displacement reaction

a. Dark reaction.

In which part of chloroplast dark reaction occur?

  • a. Membrane system
  • b. Stroma Lamella
  • c. Stroma matrix
  • d. Both b and c
d. Both b and c.

Dark reaction is also called

  • a. C3 cycle
  • b. Calvin cycle
  • c. CAM cycle
  • d. Both a and b
d. Both a and b.

Melvin Calvin used radioactive C14 to assese the dark reaction. Which plant did he use to study dark reaction?

  • a. Algae
  • b. Bryophytes
  • c. Pteridophyte
  • d. Angiosperm
a. Algae.

The first product of a C3 cycle is:

  • a. Acetic acid (2C)
  • c. Puruvic acid (3C)
  • c. Oxalo acetic acid (4C)
  • d. Glucose (6C)
c. Puruvic acid (3C)

The primary acceptor of carbon dioxide is RuBisCO. How many carbon atoms does it have?

  • a. 2C
  • b. 3C
  • c.  4C
  • d. 5C
d. 5C.
