    Answer: A) It is a step in glycolysis.

    Explanation: Glycolysis is the metabolic process through which glucose molecules are broken down, whereas β-oxidation is the catabolic process through which fatty acid molecules are broken down.

    The correct answer i: A) It is a step in glycolysis

    Beta oxidation is a catabolic process by which fatty acid molecules are broken down to generate acetyl-CoA. This process occurs in the mitochondria in eukaryotes and in the cytosol in prokaryotes.

    Glycolysis is a metabolic pathway that converts glucose into pyruvate. Glucose is a simple sugar and beta oxidation is a process which includes fatty acids.
