Pyruvate, produced during glycolysis, has several metabolic fates in animals and plants depending in part upon oxygen conditions of the cell. Complete the following statements to correctly demonstrate the fate of pyruvate and the products produced under the given conditions.

Under anaerobic conditions, pyruvate is converted to
Select Option Ethanol${ NADH}$Acetyl-CoALactic acid${ CO }_{ 2 }$
in animals and to
Select Option EthanolNADHacetyl-CoAlactic acidglucose
and ${ CO }_{ 2 }$ in plants;
Select Option FAD${ FADH }_{ 2 }$${ NADH}$${ NAD }^{ + }$Coenzyme-A
is regenerated in both. Under aerobic conditions in animals or plants, pyruvate dehydrogenase catalyzes the conversion of pyruvate to
Select Option ${ CO }_{ 2 }$ ${ NADH}$CitrateAcetyl-CoA${ O }_{ 2 }$
,
Select Option ${ CO }_{ 2 }$ ${ O }_{ 2 }$ Water${ NH }_{ 3 }$Ethylene
is evolved, and
Select Option ${ FAD}$${ FADH }_{ 2 }$${ NADH}$${ NAD }^{ + }$Coenzyme-A
is produced.
