Photosynthesis QuizIn photosynthesis, the sun's energy is captured in order to make food. Plants use carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight to produce oxygen, water, and food in the form of sugar. Plants make and store excess food that can also be used to provide energy for consumers.
Photosynthesis is not unique to plants. Other organisms that are capable of photosynthesis include some protists, bacteria, and blue-green algae.
