Expert Answer

Step 1

Alcohol fermentation is a type of biological process during which the pyruvate produced during the glycolysis of sugars, is further broken down in anaerobic conditions to yield simpler products. The process generally occurs in yeasts.

Step 2

Explanation of all the options:

  1. Glucose: Glucose is the initial component or reactant in the process of glycolysis. It is broken down into smaller and simpler forms during this process. Therefore, glucose cannot be the end product of the alcoholic fermentation.
  2. Cytoplasm and mitochondria: Cytoplasm and mitochondria are the fluid and organelle present inside a eukaryotic cell, respectively. They are neither used in any biological reaction nor produced as end product.
  3. Carbon dioxide and ethanol: Pyruvate is broken down into alcohol (as the name sug...
