  • c. External respiration
  • d. None
b. Cellular respiration

Cellular respiration occurs in which part of cell

  • b. Miochondria
  • c. Cytoplasm
  • d. Both b and c are involved
d. Both b and c are involved

  • a. C-C bond
  • b. C-H
  • c. Amide
  • d. Phosphodiester bond
a. C-C bond

The end product in respiration is

  • b. CO2
  • c. H2O
  • d. All three
d. All three

Why do we say ATP is ‘energy currency of the cell’?

  • a. ATP has high energy phosphate bonds
  • b. Cells convert them into ADP whenever they need energy
  • c. The number of ATP is limited in the cell.
  • d. None
b. Cells convert them into ADP whenever they need energy

The correct equation of cellular respiration is:

  • a. 6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy → C6H12O
  • b. 6CO2 + 6H2O → C6H12O6 + Energy
  • c. C6H12O6 + 6O2 → 6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy
  • d. C6H12O6 + 6O2 → 6CO2 + Energy
c. C6H12O6 + 6O2 → 6CO2 + 6H2O + Energy

All cells in whether in presence of oxygen or absence of oxygen undergo breakdown of glucose to pyruvate. The process is termed

  • a. Glycolysis
  • b. Gluconeogenesis
  • c. Pyrolysis
  • d. None.

a. Glycolysis
There are several pathways for break down of glucose. Some may produce acetic acid, some may produce alcohols. It depends on the organism (aerobic or anaerobic) type of cells or the presence of oxygen. But in all the pathways completes through the formation of pyruvic acid. The process is called glycolysis. It is also called EMP pathway on the name of discoverer

In EMP pathway end product is

  • a. Water + ATP
  • b. 1H2O+ 2 Pyuruvic acid + 2 NADH+H+
  • c. 1H2O+ 2 Pyuruvic acid +  ATP
  • d. None
b. 1H2O+ 2 Pyuruvic acid + 2 NADH+H+

How many ATPs produced during glycolysis of one molecule of glucose?

  • a. 4
  • b. 5
  • c. 6
  • d. 7

c. 2
two throgh substrate level phosphorylation, 

Kreb’s cycle occurs in

  • a. Cytoplasm
  • b. Chloroplast
  • c. Mitochondrial matrix
  • d. None

c. Mitochondrial matrix
Respiration in Plants MCQ

Complete breakdown of one glucose molecule yiels how many ATPs

  • a. 30 – 32
  • b. 34 – 36
  • c. 36 – 38
  • d. None

a. 30 – 32
Recent studies show, some transportation of  NADH + H+ consume energy. SO, the earlier 36-38 of phosphero glycerol shuttle/malate shuttle now is 30-32.

  • b. Inner mitochondrial menbrane
  • c. Mitochondrial matrix
  • d. Spaces between inner and outer mitochondrial membrane.
b. Inner mitochondrial menbrane
