Climate is influenced by various factors, including latitude, altitude, ocean currents, and landforms.

    A relationship in which one organism is helped and another organism is not hurt or helped by this:

    • A.

      Mutualism

    • B.

      Parasitism

    • C.

      Commensalism

    • D.

      Predation

    Correct Answer
    C. Commensalism
    Explanation
    Commensalism is a relationship in which one organism benefits while the other is neither harmed nor benefited. In this type of interaction, one organism takes advantage of the resources or habitat provided by the other organism without causing any harm or benefit in return. This relationship is often seen in nature, where one organism benefits from the presence of another without affecting its survival or reproduction. Examples of commensalism include barnacles attaching themselves to whales for transportation and remoras hitching a ride on sharks to scavenge leftover food.

      Plantkon

      Parasites

    • D.

      Mangroves

    Correct Answer
    A. Benthos
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "benthos". Benthos refers to organisms that live on or near the ocean floor. This term includes a wide range of organisms such as bacteria, algae, worms, crustaceans, and many others. These organisms play important roles in the marine ecosystem, contributing to nutrient cycling and providing food for other marine species. "Plantkon", "parasites", and "mangroves" do not accurately describe organisms that live on the ocean floor.

    A type of sybiosis in which one organism benefits and the other is harmed:

    • A.

      Mutualism

    • B.

      Parasitism

    • C.

      Succession

    Correct Answer
    B. Parasitism
    Explanation
    Parasitism is a type of symbiosis where one organism benefits (the parasite) while the other is harmed (the host). The parasite relies on the host for resources, such as nutrients or shelter, often causing damage or disease to the host in the process. This relationship is characterized by the exploitation of one organism by another, with the parasite benefiting at the expense of the host. Mutualism, on the other hand, is a type of symbiosis where both organisms benefit, while succession refers to the process of ecological change over time.
