    The correct option is: carbon dioxide (CO₂)

    Explanation:

    Cellular respiration refers to the process of generation of energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) from various nutrients such as carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.

    Aerobic cellular respiration involves the oxidation of nutrients such as glucose (C₆H₁₂O₆), by molecular oxygen (O₂) to give carbon dioxide (CO₂), water (H₂O) and heat energy.

    Reaction involved: (glucose) C₆H₁₂O₆ (s) + 6 O₂ (g) → 6 CO₂ (g) + 6 H₂O (l) + heat energy

    Therefore, in a cellular respiration, all the carbon atoms of the glucose molecules, form carbon dioxide.
