Anabolic processes are reactions in which smaller organic molecules are used for the production of the large complex molecules. The process is an endergonic process in which the energy is supplied for the formation of the new bonds in the larger complexes. In the process of photosynthesis, the smaller carbon dioxide molecules are fixed for the formation of the six-carbon glucose molecule. This is building reaction which is a type of anabolic reaction.
Thus, the correct answer is option D.

Which of the following is an anabolic organism?
Respiration is an anabolic process of releasing energy from simple sugar glucose for carrying out life.
Respiration is an anabolic process.
I read that photosynthesis is an anabolic pathway and respiration is catabolic pathway , but my doubt is, even in photosynthesis, in light phase the energy I mean ATP is released. then why we consider photosynthesis as an anabolic pathway?
What are catabolic and anabolic processes? Explain with an example..
