Which of the following statements about photosynthesis is false?

Uses light to convert oxygen and water into food

Explanation

Photosynthesis is the process by which plants create their own food. This process is enabled by chloroplasts that utilize chlorophyll, a light-absorbing pigment, to convert carbon dioxide and water into carbohydrates and glucose which the plant uses for food. A byproduct of photosynthesis is the release of oxygen and water into the atmosphere.
