      Water

    • C.

      Carbohydrates

    • D.

      Protein

    Correct Answer
    D. Protein
    Explanation
    A carnivore's diet is mostly made up of protein because carnivores primarily eat meat, which is a rich source of protein. Protein is essential for carnivores as it provides the necessary amino acids for growth, repair, and maintenance of their bodies. It also helps in the development of muscles, bones, and other tissues. Carnivores have specialized digestive systems that are adapted to efficiently process and absorb protein from their prey. Therefore, protein is the main component of a carnivore's diet to meet their nutritional needs and support their carnivorous lifestyle.

    Insects typically have six legs and two pairs of wings. This is a defining characteristic of insects, as it distinguishes them from other arthropods. The presence of six legs allows insects to move and navigate their environment, while the two pairs of wings enable them to fly. This combination of legs and wings is essential for an insect's survival and ability to adapt to different habitats.

This process is commonly observed in insects, such as butterflies and beetles, where they go through distinct stages of development, including egg, larva, pupa, and adult. The term "metamorphosis" accurately describes the phenomenon of a complete transformation in an animal's physical appearance and behavior as it progresses through different life stages.

Silk is produced by certain insects, such as silkworms, to create a protective covering for themselves during their pupal stage. This silk is strong enough to provide protection from predators and environmental factors, while also being smooth and silky in texture.
