Verified

A producer is an organism that has the ability to produce their own food with the help of light energy, while a consumer is the organism that feeds on producers to get the stored energy from it. On the other hand, a decomposer breaks down dead matter and waste to obtain energy and release the nutrients into the soil. The nutrients in the soil are beneficial to producers such as plants.
