How do aerobic and anaerobic respiration differ? (1 point) More energy is released from a glucose molecule during anaerobic respiration than during aerobic respiration. Anaerobic respiration but not aerobic respiration occurs in human cells. Anaerobic respiration requires oxygen while aerobic respiration does not. Anaerobic respiration evolved first; aerobic respiration evolved after photosynthetic organisms began producing oxygen.

    both types of respiration occur in human cells, so it isn't B. C is wrong, as is A.... So I guess it woulf have to be D..... unless I'm misremembering.

    It is d. Thats what makes the difference between procarotic and eukayotic cells. The first cells originated in a aquoeus enviroment so they were mainly sessile like bacteria. As we evolved, our way of producing energy also evolved. Aerobic respiration gives us 36 atp while anaerobic gives us only 2 atp
