    converts chemical energy to stored carbohydrates I would say because photosynthesis has to do with plants making their own food.

    I believe C is correct, andreadesirepen. Photo means light, synthesis means make. So it converts solar energy to matter and matter is in some very deep, zen way just energy stored in bonds between atoms.
