b) Autotrophs are all living organisms, whereas heterotrophs are abiotic factors
c) Autotrophs consume only plants, whereas heterotrophs consume both plants and animals

Where do autotrophs get the tools to make their own food from?
a) The sun
b) The grass
c) Other organisms
d) Abiotic factors, like water and wind

Why do many ecologists consider the sun to be the most important abiotic factor?
a) Without the sun, producers couldn't make food, and then consumers couldn't eat producers
b) Without the sun, it'd be super cold, and all the plants would die
c) The sun is the biggest abiotic factor
d) The sun restores the balance between predator and prey

What will happen to the number of prey if the number of predators INCREASE?
a) Increase, since there are more predators to hunt the prey
b) Decrease, since there are more predators hunting the prey
c) Stay the same
d) There is not enough information to answer the question

What will happen to the number of predators if the number of prey INCREASE?
a) Also increase, since there's more food for the predators to eat
b) Decrease, since the prey will start hunting the predators
c) Stay the same, since the number of prey and number of predators aren't linked
d) There is not enough information to answer the question

Which of the following is NOT an example of a heterotroph/consumer?
a) Carnivores
b) Omnivores
c) Plants
d) Elephants

What's the main difference between carnivores and herbivores?
a) Carnivores eat other consumers, but herbivores eat only producers
b) Carnivores eat producers and consumers, but herbivores eat only producers
c) Carnivores are autotrophs, while herbivores are heterotrophs
