If a plant is releasing A carbon dioxide and taking in oxygen during day time does it means that there is no photosynthesis occurring during night justify your answer
Please find below the solution to the asked query
If a plant is releasing carbon dioxide and taking in oxygen, it means the plant is performing respiration. It does not mean that the plant has stopped performing photosynthesis. In daytime plants perform both photosynthesis and respiration simultaneously, but as the carbon dioxide released in respiration is again taken up by the plant itself for photosynthesis, we cannot make out the release of gases due to respiration clearly. At night when photosynthesis is stopped, respiration process becomes clear by the release of carbon dioxide.
