ATP is produced during which of the following processes?

I. Photosynthesis
II. Aerobic respiration
III. Fermentation

Select an Answer

I only

No

II only

Correct Answer: 
No

I and III only

Correct Answer: 
No

II and III only

Correct Answer: 
No

I, II, and III

Correct Answer: 
Yes

In photosynthesis (I), solar energy is used by chlorophyll-containing plants to produce ATP. Aerobic respiration (II) in cells uses energy from oxidizing glucose to produce ATP. Fermentation (III) involves the breakdown of glucose in the absence of oxygen and produces limited quantities of ATP. Choice (E) is correct because ATP is produced during all of the listed processes.
