Solution :-

Aerobic respiration

 The process takes place in the presence of free oxygen  The products of aerobic respiration are CO2, water, and energy.

 The first step of aerobic respiration (glycolysis) takes place in the cytoplasm while the next step takes place in mitochondria.

 The process of aerobic respiration takes place in all higher organisms.

 In this process complete oxidation of glucose takes place.

Anaerobic respiration

 The process takes place in the absence of free oxygen.

 The products of anaerobic respiration are ethyl alcohol, CO2, and a little energy.

 Even in anaerobic respiration, the first step takes place in the cytoplasm while the next step takes place in mitochondria.

 In this process, the glucose molecules are incompletely broken down.

 The process of anaerobic respiration takes place in lower organisms like yeast, some species of bacteria, and parasites like a tapeworm.
