Food chains and food webs indicate the order in which organisms are eaten. what other information can food chains and food webs provide? the flow of energy in an ecosystem the movement of life materials being cycled in an ecosystem the amount of food a consumer needs to eat to survive

Answer:

The correct answer is option A, the flow of energy in an ecosystem

Explanation:

In a food chain & food web, the organism producing the food (known as producer) remains at the lower level is a food pyramid. The producer transfers 10% of its energy to next level of food pyramid i.e the primary consumer and remaining 90% of energy is retained. In the next level, secondary consumer receives 10% of energy  from the primary consumer and rest 90% is retained. Likewise in the last stage, 10% of energy is transferred to the tertiary consumer.

Jack lives in a small city in the Pacific Northwest, where the temperatures are cool all year and the sky is frequently cloudy and rainy. At his town meeting, the mayor of Jack’s town unveils his plan to change the city’s energy to solar energy. What concern should Jack raise about this plan? A. Solar energy burns high levels of fossil fuels, which harm the environment. B. The city’s climate may lower the efficiency of the solar panels. C. Solar energy is not renewable, so it will deplete natural resources. D. Geothermal plants will need to be built, which are very expensive.

Answer:

B. The city’s climate may lower the efficiency of the solar panels.

Explanation:

The solar panels convert solar energy to electrical energy. Solar energy is a renewable resource - present in abundant quantity. It does not cause any harm to the environment and not very expensive. For efficient use of solar panels, it should be put up in places which have clear and sunny skies. Thus, in Jack's town, the main concern about the use of solar energy is the climate of the city. The temperature remains cool and sky is usually cloudy. Solar panels would be inefficient to meet the energy demands of the entire town.
