    E. Ecosystem
    Explanation
    An ecosystem refers to the interaction between a community of living organisms and their abiotic environment. It includes the relationships and interdependencies between plants, animals, microorganisms, and their surroundings. The term "ecosystem" encompasses both the biotic (living) and abiotic (non-living) components, highlighting the intricate balance and interconnectedness of all elements within a specific area. Therefore, an ecosystem is the correct answer as it accurately describes the relationship between a community and its abiotic environment.

    Correct Answer
    D. Carnivore
    Explanation
    A carnivore is an organism that feeds on other organisms. They primarily consume meat or flesh, which is their main source of energy. Carnivores have adapted to have sharp teeth and claws to catch and kill their prey. They are often at the top of the food chain and play an important role in maintaining the balance of ecosystems by controlling the population of herbivores. Unlike herbivores, which eat plants, or omnivores, which eat both plants and animals, carnivores rely solely on consuming other animals for their survival.

    Resources such as water food or sunlight are more likely to be a limiting factor

    Correct Answer
    when it starts to run out
    when a population is approaching its carrying capacity.
    when the world is about to end
    when we people cant efford it.
    Explanation
    Resources such as water, food, or sunlight are more likely to be a limiting factor when it starts to run out because when a resource becomes scarce, it becomes harder for individuals within a population to access and utilize it. This can lead to competition and conflict over the limited resource. Additionally, when a population is approaching its carrying capacity, the demand for resources increases, putting strain on the available supply. When the world is about to end, resources may become scarce due to catastrophic events or depletion. Lastly, when people can't afford resources, it limits their access and utilization, making it a limiting factor.

    • D.

      Producers

    • E.

      Decomposers

    Correct Answer
    A. Omnivore
    Explanation
    The term "omnivore" refers to an organism that consumes both plants and animals as part of its diet. This means that it has a flexible diet and can obtain nutrients from a variety of sources. In contrast, a carnivore only consumes meat, a herbivore only consumes plants, and producers and decomposers are not directly related to the consumption of both plants and animals. Therefore, the correct answer is "omnivore" because it accurately describes an organism that eats both plants and animals.
