Bio-Energetics Chapter Test: PMDC Syllabus 2024 by MDCAT GEEK

Welcome to the Bio-Energetics Chapter Test prepared by MDCAT GEEK, aligned with the PMDC Syllabus 2024. This quiz delves into critical subtopics related to cellular respiration and photosynthesis, covering anaerobic and aerobic respiration, electron transport chain, glycolysis, light-dependent and light-independent reactions, oxidative phosphorylation, and factors influencing photosynthesis. Let's explore the intricacies of bioenergetics and deepen our understanding of energy processes within living organisms.


  1. Anaerobic Respiration (Respiration Without Oxygen):
    • Understanding the process of energy production in the absence of oxygen.
    • Differentiating anaerobic respiration from aerobic respiration.
    • Identifying types of anaerobic respiration and their significance.
  2. Electron Transport Chain:
    • Explaining the electron transport chain as a crucial component of cellular respiration.
    • Describing the flow of electrons and the generation of ATP.
    • Recognizing the role of mitochondria in electron transport.
  3. Glycolysis/Glycolytic Pathway/Aerobic Respiration:
    • Understanding the glycolytic pathway and its connection to aerobic respiration.
    • Highlighting the steps involved in glycolysis.
    • Emphasizing the role of oxygen in aerobic respiration.
  4. Light Dependent and Light Independent Phases/Reactions:
    • Describe the two phases of photosynthesis and their dependence on light.
    • Explain the chemical reactions occurring during each phase.
    • Understanding the role of chlorophyll in capturing light energy.
  5. Oxidative Phosphorylation/Cyclic and Non-Cyclic Phosphorylation:
    • Differentiating between cyclic and non-cyclic phosphorylation.
    • Linking oxidative phosphorylation to ATP production.
    • Identifying the significance of phosphorylation in cellular energy transfer.
  6. Photosynthesis:
    • Providing an overview of the process of photosynthesis.
    • Detailing the conversion of light energy into chemical energy.
    • Emphasizing the importance of photosynthesis in sustaining life.
  7. Production of ATP:
    • Explaining the role of ATP in cellular energy transfer.
    • Describing how ATP is produced during different metabolic processes.
  8. Role of Light, Water, CO2/Factors Affecting Photosynthesis:
    • Analyzing the influence of light, water, and CO2 on the rate of photosynthesis.
    • Exploring environmental factors that can affect the photosynthetic process.
    • Understanding how plants adapt to varying conditions.
