    Correct Answer
    C. Leaves
    Explanation
    Caterpillars usually eat leaves as their primary source of food. Leaves provide the necessary nutrients and energy for their growth and development. They have specialized mouthparts that allow them to chew and consume the leaf material. While some caterpillars may consume fruits or ants occasionally, leaves are the main component of their diet. Leaves also provide protection for caterpillars, as they can blend in with the foliage and avoid predators.

    Correct Answer
    C. 15
    Explanation
    The caterpillar ate through 1 apple on Monday, 2 pears on Tuesday, 3 plums on Wednesday, 4 strawberries on Thursday, and 5 oranges on Friday. To find the total number of pieces of fruit the caterpillar ate, we add up the number of fruits eaten each day: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 = 15. Therefore, the caterpillar ate through 15 pieces of fruit.
