- a A consumer in which they get their energy from the consumption of plants (ex. cows, moose, and rabbits).
- b The rigid outtermost shell of a rocky planet (ex. Earth consists of a crust and uppermost mantle within it's lithosphere.
- c A carnivorous feeding behavior in which a predator consumes a corpse that was not killed to be eaten by the predator (ex. vultures, blowflies, and raccoons).

5 True/False questions
Trophic Levels (1) → An organism and the position it occupies on the food chain (ex. primary producers level 1 and predators at level 3).
Nitrogen Fixation (2) → Any product of condensation of atmospheric water vapor that falls under gravity (ex. rain, snow, sleet, hail, and graupel).
Humus (1) → Any organic matter which has reached a point of stability where it will not break down any further and remain as it is for centuries (ex. mature compost and natural compost used to amend soil).
Biotic Potential (2) → The maximum reproductive capacity of a population, if resources are limited (sig. If the value of population increase can be determined, the impact of the environment upon the population can also be determined)
Food Web (1) → Representations of predator-prey relationships between species within an ecosystem or habitat (ex. A snakes prey might be a mouse, while his predator may be a badger that is represented through a web of organisms).
