The net gain of energy from one molecule of sucrose in aerobic respiration is (a) 18 ATP (b) 60 ATP (c) 38 ATP (d) 80 ATP
Explain in detail...

Dear student.

The correct answer is  (d) 80 ATP.

Sucrose will break down into glucose and fructose. Glucose will undergo glycolysis. The metabolism of fructose will occur in liver, where it will form Dihydroxyacetone phosphate + Glyceraldehyde-3-phosphate. These molecules can again enter glycolysis.
