Which of the following best describes the process of photosynthesis?

A Conversion of light energy into chemical energy.

Photosynthesis is the process by which plants, algae, and some bacteria convert light energy from the Sun into chemical energy in the form of glucose. During photosynthesis, plants use carbon dioxide and water, along with sunlight and chlorophyll, to produce glucose (a sugar) and oxygen. This process occurs in the chloroplasts of plant cells and is essential for the survival of most life on Earth, as it is the primary means by which energy enters the food chain. Breaking down of glucose into carbon dioxide and water, release of energy from ATP molecules, and formation of proteins from amino acids are not specific to photosynthesis and describe other metabolic processes.
