It seems you just copied and pasted the question. What are your current thoughts on how you should answer this?

Im not going to tell you but here are things that might help you

Co2 think about what is needed for photosynthesis to occur
temperature- what happens in photosynthesis that could be changed by the temperature, cycles in photosynthesis and how they happen
-light intensity and wavelength- what takes in light? what wavelengths are absorbed the easiest,

I’ve done it but realised it’s wrong

Carbon dioxide: The rate of photosynthesis increases as carbon dioxide levels increase, as more organic molecules are being produced. However, the rate will not increase beyond a certain concentration of carbon dioxide, because the enzymes are responsible for carbon fixation are saturated

Temperature: The rate of photosynthesis increases as the temperature increases. However, the rate decreases/declines after the temperature reaches an optimal level, which is usually around 35 and enzymes begin to denature

Light intensity: The rate of photosynthesis increases as light intensity increases, as more chlorophyll are being photo-activated. However, the rate will not increase beyond a certain level of light intensity. This is because the chlorophyll would e saturated with light

Light wavelength: Light can also be absorbed by pigments. Different wavelengths of light will have different effects on the rate of photosynthesis (e.g. green light is reflected).
