Solution

(i) Release of oxygen during photosynthesis
(ii) The physiological process in question is photosynthesis. Photosynthesis occurs in green plants (autotrophs). It is the process by which plants prepare carbohydrates and oxygen in the presence of sunlight, carbon dioxide and chlorophyll.
(iii)

1: Gas/Oxygen
2: Hydrilla

(iv) 6CO2+12H2O `"Sunlight"/"Chlorophyll"` C6H12O6+6H2O+6O2

(v) The rate of bubbling will increase.
