Solution :-

Glycolysis Fermentation
Glycolysis is a common pathway for
both aerobic and anaerobic modes of
Fermentation is a type of anaerobic
respiration which occurs in the absence of
Glucose is split into two molecules of
pyruvic acid during glycolysis.
During fermentation, pyruvic acid is
converted to ethyl alcohol (yeast and
some other microbes) or lactic acid
(muscle cells of humans).
Glycolysis results in a net gain of 2
molecules of ATP.
No ATP is produced during fermentation
It gives out two molecules of NADH
per glucose molecule.
It generally utilizes NADH produced
during glycolysis.
