|This is highly dependent on the state of the organism. This describing RER (CO2/O2) during periods of high glycolysis, RER = 1; during sedentary and moderate workloads 0 < RER < 1.|

|Simply you can get the answer by knowing that oxidation no of carbon in a bioorganic molecule is -4 while in CO2 is +4 which mean there is 8 e lost. i.e. 4 for each O atom in O2 molecule.
These four electrons transferred from glucose through its aerobic oxidation to last acceptor the oxygen (passed through TCA and electron transport chain.
