    Look at which reaction would not be able to take place if there was no Reduced NADP. Which things would no longer be produced? Which things would start to build up as they could no longer react?

    I would say that RuBP would eventually run out since there is no more GALP, so RuBP can't be made either, but you could argue either way with that one and it would depend on how long you left the system for without any NADPH. You're completely right about GALP and GP though.
