A process that makes important difference between C3 and C4 plants is

  • transpiration

  • glycolysis

  • photosynthesis

  • photorespiration

Answer

D.

photorespiration

Photorespiration is a light dependent process which occurs in C3 plants. It is opposite to photosynthesis because during this process uptake of O2 and release of CO2 take place. Due to the presence of Kranz anatomy, C4 plants do not show photorespiration.
