14) When a muscle contracts anaerobically, more lactic acid is formed than when it contractsaerobically becauseA) oxygen inhibits fermentation of pyruvate to lactateBrunder anaerobic conditions, most pyruvate is fermented to ethanolC) under aerobic conditions, most pyruvate is oxidized to CO2 by the citric acid cycleD) glycolysis does not occur to a significant extent under aerobic conditions.E) it's been paralyzed by a 3000-fold excess of Botox

Please explain why B)[ under anaerobic conditions most pyruvate is fermented to ethanol]is  wrong and give me the correct answer

14) When a muscle contracts anaerobically, more lactic acid is formed than when it contracts
aerobically because
A) oxygen inhibits fermentation of pyruvate to lactate
Brunder anaerobic conditions, most pyruvate is fermented to ethanol
C) under aerobic conditions, most pyruvate is oxidized to CO2 by the citric acid cycle
D) glycolysis does not occur to a significant extent under aerobic conditions.
E) it's been paralyzed by a 3000-fold excess of Botox

Step 1

Muscle contraction is the process of generation of tension in the muscle tissues. The energy required by the process of muscle contraction is obtained from the process of respiration. Respiration is a physiological process occurring in the body of an organism that includes breaking down of complex glucose molecule into simpler molecules along with yielding energy moieties.

Step 2

It can take place either in aerobic condition as well as in anaerobic condition. The combustion is incomplete in anaerobic respiration whereas it is complete in aerobic condition. The process of anaerobic respiration utilizes salts containing oxygen as electron acceptor whereas in aerobic respiration, the free Oxygen molecule is utilized as an electron acceptor.

When a muscle contracts anaerobically, more lactic acid is formed than when it contracts anaerobically because oxygen inhibits fe...
