  • 4. 
    The process of Fixation is:
    • A. 

      The process that causes the strong two-atom nitrogen molecules to break apart so they can combine with other atoms. When it combines with oxygen and hydrogen.

    • B. 

      When nitrogen fixes itself to a plant.

    • C. 

      When nitrate turns into ammonia, then ammonia turns into plants, then the animals eat the plants and it is turned back into nitrogen.

    • D. 

      When nitrogen gets fixed.

  • 5.
