A.It is a cyclical series of reactions

utilizing atmospheric carbon dioxide to produce carbohydrates.

B.Chlorophyll absorbs solar energy and shoots off an electron, which is transferred through a series of compounds, releasing a little energy (ATP) each time, and ending up in NADPH. Energy stored in ATP and NADPH provides fuel for the Calvin cycle.

C.Carbon dioxide and water combine with chlorophyll to absorb solar energy. The carbon dioxide shoots off an electron which is transferred through a series of compounds, releasing a little energy (ATP) each time, and ending up in NADPH. Energy stored in ATP and NADPH provides fuel for the Calvin cycle.
