A. Fungi

B. Protozoa

C. Bacteria

D. Green plants

Answer: Option D

Solution(By Examveda Team)

The maximum 20% of the input of solar energy falling on leaves is converted into chemical energy by green plants. Green plants utilize solar energy and synthesize sugar from CO2 and water through the process of photosynthesis. However, they are able to utilize only 3% of the light energy that strikes on their green parts; the rest is dissipated as heat.
