During the day, plants use carbon dioxide and release oxygen by the process of photosynthesis. At night, plants will respire just like we do, taking in oxygen and releasing carbon dioxide. However, the amount of carbon dioxide they release is smaller than the amount they use during the day.

Yes, Sunlight makes the plant grow then eventually the plant does a process called respiring which makes Carbon Dioxide. Once the Carbon Dioxide is released it turns into Oxygen which helps us breathe. Hope I've helped you with your homework! :D

Yes they do. Plant get CO2 during the day for food processing and give away O2, at night they give away CO2 that is why you cannot be with photosynthetic plant in the same room with closed air inlet you will die.

Plants do not really release CO2 into the air. They do produce it through respiration but is is just as likely to be used again and not escape. Perhaps you are thinking of Oxygen which they do release a lot of. In either case gases diffuse out of the cells of the leaves and escape through the stomata (pores) of the leaves.

No, plants inhale carbon dioxide and release oxygen. They're the opposite of us.

No they do not make carbon dioxide. Plants NEED CARBON DIOXIDE for photosynthesis to make their food, so they take it in from the atmosphere. As a by-product of photosynthesis, plants RELEASE OXYGEN...
 
Humans and other animals do the opposite, we NEED OXYGEN, so take it from the atmosphere, and RELEASE CARBON DIOXIDE. This is why plants need us, and we need plants.
