Cellular respiration is a cell's way of obtaining energy, so it's a process you depend on in order to live. You missed some questions, so you might want to review the details of cellular respiration, especially the Krebs or citric acid cycle and glycolysis. If you're ready for another quiz, see how much you know about everyday chemistry.
