Discussion :: Carbohydrate - Section 1 (Q.No.2)


A common way that cells capture the energy released during the breakdown of large molecules is to add electrons to smaller, specialized molecules that can accept them. This process of electron acceptance is otherwise known as

[A]. biosynthesis
[B]. metabolism
[C]. reduction
[D]. catalysis

Answer: Option C


No answer description available for this question.

The breakdown of C-C covalent bonds and loss of 2H+. Energy released is conserved as Reducing equivalents which are the primary electron donors in respiratory chain. In the later metabolic pathway, molecular oxygen is reduced into water after the completion of oxidative phosphorylation.

Simply I can say reduction is true answer since it involve gaining/accepting of electron during chemical reaction.

I want correct suggestion about the answer. Please give me.

Reduction is correct since it is the gaining of electrons.

Yes, The correct answer is a reduction because since it involves the gaining of the electron.

Mutembi Edwin said: (Oct 13, 2017)  
Reduction is the most appropriate answer, since reduction involve gaining of electrons.
