    Dear students,
    For question no.8- The molecular basis of fats are burnt in the fire of carbohydrates- The answer can be explained as-
    Fats- lets say fatty acids upon oxidation produce Acetylco A,which is completely oxidized in TCA cycle. The functioning of TCA cycle depends upon the availability of oxaloacetate, which is considered to be mainly a product of carboxylation of pyruvate (Although there are other sources of oxaloacetate but this is considered to be the main source)
    Pyruvate is the end product of glycolysis(Though there are alternative sources of pyruvate but glucose oxidation is the main source). Glucose represents carbohydrate group. In other words carbohydrates form glucose, which forms pyruvate and that forms oxaloacetate. Thus oxaloacetate is a representative of carbohydrates.
    Thus to conclude, acetyl co A (Product of fatty acid oxidation) can be completely burnt(oxidized) only under the fire( in the prsence) of carbohydrates(oxaloacetate- in TCA cycle).
