1. Which of the following is an example of energy transfer from the sun to a producer and then to a consumer?
a. sun warms rocks; squirrels climb over rocks; squirrels are eaten by other animals
b. sunlight helps plants to grow and deer eat plants
c. sun heats pond water; fish swim in water; bears eat fish
d. none of the above
I think it's b but can you check?
I agree with b. In a and c, the energy contributed by the sun is not directly converted to chemical energy of the eaten animals.
