3. Animals that feed on both plants and animals are called carnivores herbivores detritivores omnivores

Animal 'X' could be a herbivore e.g., zebra carnivore that is a predator of wildebeest and lions carnivore that is a predator of wildebeest but a prey of the lions


1. Draw the structure of the pathway of water movement from the soil to the stem 2. Differentiate between diffusion, osmosis and active transport with an example for each. 3. Describe the methods by which carnivorous plants are adapted to their function (illustrate as well) 4. Draw a food chain that shows how a mouse, an owl and grass are connected. Explain how plants get their food..Name two animals that are omnivores. Give an example of a plant and an animal that each one might eat.There are fewer animals in a desert than a rainforest. Why? 5. Dinosaurs like the Tyrannosaurus rex have been extinct for millions of years. Even though they have never seen a living Tyrannosaurus, scientists who have studied dinosaur fossils are certain that the Tyrannosaurus rex was a carnivore. Explain how they could they know this. Give an example of when two different species might compete for the same prey. PART C
