    The answer is B.

    A is correct because leaves contain living cells and all living cells carry out respiration.

    C and D are correct. By the formula of respiration:

    glucose + oxygen → carbon dioxide + water + energy

    (but we seldom write the exist of energy in a formula)

    B is incorrect because respiration carries out in a lower speed. A reason is the temperature of the cell is not high as burning food in air.
