Plants carry out photosynthesis only during the day and respiration only at night.WHY FALSE??????

Dear Student!

Plants carry out photosynthesis only during day but they respire throughout. Respiration by plants in day is called photorespiration. During day, photosynthesis produces much more oxygen than required for respiration, some oxygen is liberated while some is trapped in the cells for respiration to take place in the night.
