UNDERSTANDING INTENDED MEANING

Let’ break the sentence to derive the intended meaning, identifying the errors along the way:

The chemical nature of the photosynthesis reaction
is similar to
the cellular respiratory reaction;
both reactions display conversion of energy
between one form to
another

ERRORS:
1. The sentence suffers from comparison and parallelism error. The nature of a reaction is being illogically compared with a reaction. The nature of one reaction should be compared to the nature of another reaction. This would make the comparison logical and parallel.
Correction: The chemical nature of the photosynthesis reaction is similar to that of (the chemical nature of) the cellular respiratory reaction.

2. Incorrect idiomatic usage:
“Between X and Y” is the correct idiom. Thus, “between X to Y” here is incorrect”
Moreover, the usage of “between” is not logical here since we are talking about conversion.
Correction: conversion from X to Y.

INTENDED MEANING:

• The chemical nature of the photosynthesis reaction is similar to the chemical nature of the cellular respiratory reaction.
• both reactions display conversion of energy from one form to another

Only Choice D is devoid of all errors identified above.
