How plants produce food
1 a) Types of species (1 mark)
b) Light intensity (1 mark)
c) Rapid increase in rate of photosynthesis (1 mark)
up to a light intensity of 20 kilolux (1 mark)
slower decrease in rate (up to 50 kilolux) (1 mark)
d) Any reasonable spread around 20 kilolux (1 mark)
e) 30 kilolux (1 mark)
Both the figure and the units are required. It is important that students
always give units when expressing values.…read more

2 a) E air space
F stoma/stomata
G guard cell (1 mark each)
b) i) C ­ prevents water loss/reduces transpiration (1 mark)
ii) G ­ controls the movement of gases into and out of the
leaf/opens and closes the stomata to allow gases in and out. (1
For G (guard cell) the important thing is for candidates to convey
the idea of controlling the gases going in and out.…read more
