1. Why are there different pigments present in the chloroplast?
- Because each pigment absorbs different wavelengths of light
- Because some pigments absorb infrared radiation
- Because each pigment is a different colour
- Because each pigment is located in a different part of the chloroplast and are thus in different conditions

2. In the light-indepedent reaction (Calvin cycle) Ribulose biphospate combines with CO2, aided by enzyme action. What is the product of this?
- Glycerate 3 phospate
- Triose phospate
- ADP and Pi
- Phosporylated glucose
3. It is called the 'compensation point' when...
- Respiration rate = Photosynthesis rate
- CO2 concentration (released) = O2 concentration (absorbed)
- Light absorbed = respiration rate

- Making proteins
- Use in respiration
- Conversion into starch for storage
5. Where does the light-independent reaction take place?
- In the stomata
