Can anybody help me understand this question?Watch
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.
