Photosynthesis Higher Plants Mock Exam-11

Question No:1

Assertion: Each molecule of ribulose-1, 5-bisphosphate fixes one molecule of CO2
Reason: Three molecules of NADPH and two ATP are required for fixation of one molecule of CO2.

[A] If both the assertion and the reason are true and the reason is a correct explanation of the assertion
[B] If both the assertion and reason are true but the reason is not a correct explanation of the assertion
[C] If the assertion is true but the reason is false
[D] If both the assertion and reason are false



Question No:2

Assertion: Regeneration of CO2 acceptor molecule RuBP is crucial if the cycle is to continue uninterrupted.
Reason: The regeneration steps require one ATP for phosphorylation to form RuBP.

[A] If both the assertion and the reason are true and the reason is a correct explanation of the assertion
[B] If both the assertion and reason are true but the reason is not a correct explanation of the assertion
[C] If the assertion is true but the reason is false
[D] If both the assertion and reason are false



Question No:3

Assertion: C4 photosynthetic pathway is more efficient than the C3 pathway.
Reason: Photorespiration is suppressed in C4 plants.

[A] If both the assertion and the reason are true and the reason is a correct explanation of the assertion
[B] If both the assertion and reason are true but the reason is not a correct explanation of the assertion
[C] If the assertion is true but the reason is false
[D] If both the assertion and reason are false



Question No:4

Read the following four statements, (i), (ii), (iii) and (iv) and select the right option having both correct statements.
Statements:
