Using your knowledge of anaerobic and aerobic respiration together with the information provided, determine whether any of glycerol, fatty acids, or keto acids can be used in anaerobic respiration. Using your knowledge of where glycerol, fatty acids, and keto acids join the respiratory pathway and which parts of aerobic respiration stop when there is no oxygen available, determine whether these molecules can be used for anaerobic respiration.

This is more of the info given;

Just like glucose, glycerol must undergo phosphorylation for
its conversion to triose phosphate. This process requires the hydrolysis of one
ATP molecule but also generates three ATP molecules.

Fatty acids are converted to acetyl coenzyme A in a process
called β-oxidation. Each acetyl coenzyme A molecule produced only requires two
carbon atoms from the fatty acid chain, so each molecule of acid can produce
many molecules of acetyl coenzyme A. These then enter the Krebs cycle as usual.

It's a fairly long topic. I recommend checking out khan academy:
