Which compound has the highest free energy and produces the most ATP when oxidized?
A. acetyl CoA
B. glucose
C. pyruvate
D. carbon
E. both pyruvate and carbon

I've spent the past hour looking for this answer within my textbook or through Google searches. I can't seem to locate any information regarding the free energy that compounds have nor any information on the ATP produced during the oxidation of these compounds. Can someone please shed some light on this question by either explaining how I can figure it out on my own or leading me in the right direction in my research for the answer?

Any help is greatly appreciated.
