(a) The process in plants that converts light energy into chemical energy is known as Photosynthesis.

(b) Organisms that cannot prepare their own food are known as Heterotrophs.

(c) Organisms that can prepare their own food are known as Autotrophs.

(d) The cell organelle where photosynthesis occurs is Chloroplast.

(e) The cells which surround a stomatal pore are called Guard cells.

(f) An enzyme secreted by gastric glands in the stomach which act on proteins is called Pepsin. (The work of Pepsin is to digest proteins present in the food and converts them into smaller molecules.)
