    Being pedantic, you cannot "make" energy; the first law of thermodynamics sees to this.

    The Krebs cycle (note the 's' in 'Krebs') is the third part of the four-part process of cell respiration, which converts glucose into ATP (adenosine triphosphate, the molecule responsible for the transport of energy). I doubt that a Biology question will be too pedantic over the laws of thermodynamics, so I'd guess that the question wants you to explain that the Krebs cycle is not the only part of cell respiration.

    You might find it useful to watch this video, which goes into the process of cell respiration (including the Krebs cycle):
