    In a protein complex for the light reaction (a reaction center), energy is transferred from pigment molecule to pigment molecule, to a special chlorophyll a molecule, and eventually to the primary electron acceptor. Why does this occur?
    a. The action spectrum of that molecule is such that it is different from other molecules of chlorophyll.
    b. The potential energy of the electron has to go back to the ground state.
    c. The molecular environment lets it boost an electron to a higher energy level and also to transfer the electron to another molecule.
    d. Each pigment molecule has to be able to act independently to excite electrons.
    e. These chlorophyll a molecules are associated with higher concentration of ATP.
    C: The molecular environment lets it boost an electron to a higher energy level and also to transfer the electron to another molecule.

    P680+ is said to be the strongest biological oxidizing agent. Why?
    a. It is the receptor for the most excited electrons in either photosystem.
    b. It is the molecule that transfers electrons to plastoquinone (Pq) of the electron transfer system.
    c. NADP reductase will then catalyze the shift of the electron from Fd to NADP+ to reduce it to NADPH.
    d. This molecule results from the transfer of an electron to the primary electron acceptor of photosystem II and strongly attracts another electron.
    e. This molecule is found far more frequently among bacteria as well as in plants and plantlike Protists.
    D: This molecule results from the transfer of an electron to the primary electron acceptor of photosystem II and strongly attracts another electron.

    Some photosynthetic bacteria (e.g., purple sulfur bacteria) have photosystem I but not II, while others (e.g. cyanobacteria) have both PSI and PSII. Which of the following might this observation imply?
    a. Photosystem II must have been selected against in some species.
    b. Photosystem I must be more ancestral.
    c. Photosystem II may have evolved to be more photoprotective.
    d. Cyclic flow must be more primitive than linear flow of electrons.
    e. Cyclic flow must be the most necessary of the two processes.
    B: Photosystem I must be more ancestral.
