    Question 1: What is the correct term for organisms that consume other organisms in order to gain energy and are also known as consumers?
    Answer: heterotrophs

    Question 2: What is the major difference between the position of producers and primary consumers in the food chain?
    Answer: Primary consumers make up the second level of the food chain, while producers make up the first level of the food chain.

    Question 3: As energy is passed through the food chain, some of the energy is lost as heat. What is the approximate amount of energy that is passed from one trophic level to the next?
    Answer: 10 percent

    Question 4: Use the image below to answer the question.
    Answer: lion

    Question 5: Is the tamarisk beetle an invasive species? Read the following passage, and use the evidence provided to determine whether or not they would be classified as invasive.
    “Tamarisk trees were introduced to the U.S. as an ornamental shrub due to their pretty pink color and ability to provide erosion control. However, they were soon recognized as invasives due to their hoarding of light, water, and nutrients, drying out riparian areas. They also were outcompeting the plants that the Southwestern willow flycatcher nested in. As a result, the tamarisk beetle was introduced because they eat the tamarisk plant. They were extremely effective, except there was one caveat- the flycatcher birds had begun to use the tamarisk to nest in. So, protocols had to be adjusted to allow some tamarisk to remain; no beetles were released within 200 miles of any flycatcher nest, so the bird populations could continue to grow while the beetles continued to remove invasive tamarisk trees in other areas."
    Answer: No, the tamarisk beetle is not invasive, because it is only destroying the intended invasive plants.

    Question 6: The ultimate source of energy for most organisms is
    Answer: the sun.

    Question 7: Which of the following is the best evidence that supports the rule that only 10% of energy is transferred from one organism to another?
    Answer: There are fewer organisms at the top of the food chain because there is less energy available for life processes.

    Question 8: When humans undergo anaerobic respiration, they
    Answer: experience sore muscles.

    Question 9: Read the following statement and choose the option that has the respective answers in the correct order.
    “Energy inputs occur via __________ in plants or ingesting food in animals; this energy drives the flow of matter into and out of the cell. The energy is released by __________ and eventually cycles back into the ecosystem as __________.”
    Answer: photosynthesis; respiration; heat

    Question 10: Do both animal and plant cells have mitochondria? Why or why not?
    Answer: Yes; they both need mitochondria for cellular respiration.

    Question 11: Chemosynthesis relies on which energy source?
    Answer: chemical
