Which of the following BEST explains why thylakoids are arranged into stacks referred to as grana inside of chloroplasts?


When stacked, thylakoids are better able to exchange raw materials with each other necessary for the production of ATP and NADPH production.


When stacked, photons of light that pass through on thylakoid are likely to be captured by another thylakoid before escaping the bottom of a chloroplast.


When stacked, thylakoids are better protected from the harmful free radicals produced when water is split during the light reactions of photosynthesis.


When stacked, each thylakoid is able to increase their total surface area which allows more electron transport chains to be embedded into each thylakoid membrane.
