Which part of the plant makes the most food?

  1. Leaves
  2. Root
  3. Stem
  4. Flower


Leaves perform photosynthesis using solar energy to produce food in the form of glucose using carbon dioxide and water. Therefore, the simple food that is prepared by the leaves is called glucose.

The correct answer is: Leaves

    • The roots take up water and minerals from the ground and their leaves absorb a gas called carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air.
    • These ingredients are converted into food by using energy from sunlight. This process is called photosynthesis, which means 'making out of light'.
    • Leaves perform photosynthesis.
