I think both? Photosynthesis provides glucose, which is then broken down in respiration to produce energy (as ATP). This energy is then used to drive processes in the plant that ultimately make it grow.

Green plants use photosynthesis to create energy from carbon dioxide and sunlight. This energy, in the form of glucose, is used by the plant to grow and fuel the necessary reproductive activities of the plant. Excess glucose is stored in the leaves, stem and roots of the plant. The stored glucose provides food for higher organisms that eat the plants. A byproduct of the process of photosynthesis is oxygen, which is released into the atmosphere in exchange for the carbon dioxide used during the chemical reaction of photosynthesis.

To make it clear, photosynthesis makes plants grow and respiration is a process in photosynthesis.

so essentially in a question about plant growth you would wanna mention photosynthesis

Exactly. Mention plants need food, water and light, and that light helps the process of glucose production, and that respiration helps to break down that glucose
