Q4.21. Which of the following statements about photosystems (C3,C4\left(\mathrm{C}_{3}, \mathrm{C}_{4}\right., and CAM) is true?
Only a minority of Earth's plants rely on the C3\mathrm{C}_{3} photosynthesis pathway.
CAM plants avoid photorespiration but have the cost of low water use efficiency.
Most C4\mathrm{C}_{4} and CAM plants are found at high latitudes, in cool climates.
For C4\mathrm{C}_{4} plants, the metabolic cost of avoiding photorespiration can be substantial.

Key Concept
C4 Photosynthesis and Metabolic Cost
C4 photosynthesis involves additional steps to concentrate CO2 before entering the Calvin cycle, which reduces photorespiration but increases energy expenditure.
