The correct answer to this question is B, NADP+. ATP is also another product of the Calvin Cycle. The stored energy from these two products is used to convert 3-PGA into G3P, which is a three-carbon compound. There are three stages of the cycle, and they are fixation, regeneration, and reduction.

The cycle is also referred to as the Calvin-Benson cycle, and it is named after chemist Melvin Calvin and Andrew Benson. They discovered the cycle along with his colleagues at the University of California Berkely. Their research found that the sun uses chlorophyll to fuel the organic compounds of the plant.

The correct answer to this question is option B
Calvin cycle, also known as Benson Calvin cycle refers to series of chemical reactions that take place in the chloroplast of a plant during photosynthesis.

The cycle has four main steps that are light dependent. These steps are: carbon fixation, reduction phase, carbohydrate formation, and regeneration phase.

The energy required to carry out these chemical reactions is supplied by ATP and NADPH. This cycle is light dependent as it takes place after the energy has been captured from sunlight.
The products of Calvin cycle are: Carbohydrate, NADP+ and ADP.
Hope this helps.
