Assertion (A): Energy is used during the process of respiration.
Reason (R): Respiration stores energy in the form of ATP.
The energy generation process can be given by:
We can see here that,
- A small amount of energy is required to convert ADP molecules to ATP
- This ATP is stored in the body as energy.
- Stores ATP can be broken back down to ADP to release energy that we use.
- The assertion is True
- The reason is True
The reason is NOT the correct explanation of the assertion
So, the correct option is (b).
