The end product of a process is ethanol and carbon dioxide with the release of energy. Name this process and write the pathway involved in the reaction.
During aerobic respiration, the product is CO2 & H2O. While during anaerobic respiration, the product can be either lactic acid or ethanol+CO2 on the basis of enzyme involved.
If the product is ethanol &CO2, the process is termed as Fermentation.
Initially glucose gets converted into pyruvic acid (by the process of glycolysis-common in both aerobic & anaerobic respiration). In fermentation, this pyruvic acid produces ethanol & carbon-dioxide in the presence of enzyme alcohol dehydrogenase. This fermentation process is also used for industrial production of alcohol.

A, Band Care three living organisms. The organism A is a unicellullar fungus which can live without air. It is used in the commercial production of an organic compound P from molasses. The organism B is a unicellular animal which lives in water and feeds and moves by using pseudopodia. It breathes through an organelle Q. The organism C is a tiny animal which acts as a carrier of malarial parasite. It breathes and respires through a kind of tiny holes Rand air-tubes Sin its body.
