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

- CO2 concentration (released) = O2 concentration (absorbed)
- Light absorbed = respiration rate
- Respiration rate = Photosynthesis rate
4. Why is the rate of photosynthesis not equal to the net uptake of CO2 by a plant?
- Because CO2 is used only in the light-indepedent reaction
- Because some CO2 produced in respiration is used for photosynthesis
- Because the rate of photosynthesis increases with temperature
- Because venus flytraps are carnivores
5. Where does the light-independent reaction take place?
- In the chloroplast membrane
- In the stomata
- In the stroma
- In the thylakoid membrane of the chloroplast
