Expert Answer:

Anaerobic respiration generates less energy because only glycolysis occurs which forms 2ATP molecules.
However in aerobic repiration there is krebs cycle taking place which is responsible for making around 30 ATP molecules. In total, aerobic respiration generates 36-38 ATP molecules.
