Answer:

Glycolysis occurs in the cytoplasm.

Explanation:

Aerobic respiration occurs in mitochondria, whereas anaerobic respiration occurs in the cytoplasm.

Glycolysis is common to both aerobic and anaerobic respiration.
Glucose #(C6H12O6)# is converted into 2 molecules of pyruvic acid #(CH3COCOOH)#.

In aerobic respiration, pyruvic acid is converted into acetyl coenzymeA that enters Citric acid cycle in mitochondrion.

In anaerobic respiratio, pyruvic acid is converted either into lactic acid or ethyl alcohol #(C2H5OH)# and #CO2# in cytoplasm.
