Example Question #1 : Life Science

Select the type of organism that eats living plants.  

Possible Answers:

Producers

Consumers  

Decomposers 

Producers and Consumers 

Correct answer:

Consumers  

Explanation:

There are three main types of organisms that make up a food chain: producers, consumers, and decomposers. 

Producers produce, or make, their own food. Plants are producers because they make their own food using sun, water, and carbon dioxide. 

Consumers are animals that can't make their own food, so they eat, or consume, plants and/or other animals. 

Decomposers eat dead plants and animals. Bacteria and fungi are common examples of decomposers. 

Concumers is the correct answer. 

Example Question #2 : Life Science

Select the type of organism that produces its own food. 

Possible Answers:

Producers

Consumers  

Decomposers 

Producers and Consumers

Possible Answers:

Producers

Producers and Consumers 

Decomposers 

Consumers  

Correct answer:

Consumers  

Explanation:

There are three main types of organisms that make up a food chain: producers, consumers, and decomposers. 

Producers produce, or make, their own food. Plants are producers because they make their own food using sun, water, and carbon dioxide. 

Consumers are animals that can't make their own food, so they eat, or consume, plants and/or other animals. 

Decomposers eat dead plants and animals. Bacteria and fungi are common examples of decomposers. 

Humans eat plants and/or animals; thus, humans are consumers.
