  4. Leaves


In most plants, the leaves are the main food factories. They capture the sun's energy with the help of chlorophyll in the leaf cells.

The correct answer is: Leaves

    • Chlorophyll's job in a plant is to absorb light usually sunlight.
    • The energy absorbed from light is transferred to two kinds of energy-storing molecules.
    • Through photosynthesis, the plant uses the stored energy to convert carbon dioxide (absorbed from the air) and water into glucose, a type of sugar.
