How does energy flow through a food web?
A) The decomposers start the cycle by producing energy from decaying organisms. The consumers get energy from the sun and provide it to the producers in the form of fertilizer.
B) The sun provides energy to the producers (plants) that are eaten by consumers. Less powerful consumers are eaten by more powerful consumers. The decomposers break down dead organisms.
C) The sun provides energy directly to the consumers that feed the producers. The producers return energy to the sun. The decomposers break down dead organisms.
D) The producers release gas energy to the sun. The decomposers provide energy to both producers and consumers. The consumers get energy only from plant producers.
