Question 1 Report
If a healthy potted plant is continuously kept in dim light
If a healthy potted plant is continuously kept in dim light, the rate of photosynthesis will decrease as the plant will receive less light energy for photosynthesis. This means that the plant will produce less oxygen and release less carbon dioxide, which are the byproducts of photosynthesis. As a result, the rate of respiration will also decrease because the plant needs less energy from glucose to carry out cellular functions. If the plant is kept in extremely dim light, it may not have enough energy from photosynthesis to carry out respiration, which could lead to the plant's death. However, if the light level is just reduced, the plant will adjust to the new level of light and maintain a balance between the rate of photosynthesis and respiration. In this case, the plant will take in less carbon dioxide and release less oxygen, and its overall growth may slow down due to the decreased energy from photosynthesis.
