coenzymes NAD+ and FAD are connected with respiratory reaction as they
a. hydrogen carrier b. are reducing agent
c. function in kreb cycle and terminal oxidative phosphorylation
d. are involved in each step of atp synthesis

The concept is that :The NADH generated by the citric acid cycle is fed into the oxidative phosphorylation (electron transport) pathway.
The reduced coenzymes NADH (two molecules of NAD+ are reduced to NADH during glycolysis) and FADH2 link glycolysis and the Krebs Cycle to oxidative phosphorylation by passing their electrons down the electron transport chain to oxygen.
