  7. The process by which green plants synthesis their food using sunlight, carbondioxide, water and chlorophyll is called photosynthesis.
  8. SaprophytesParasites
    Organisms which depend on dead and decaying organic material for their nourishment are known as saprophytes.Organisms which depend on living organisms for their nutritional requirement are known as parasites.
    They do not harm other living organisms.Parasites harm the host organism.
    Saprophytes do not feed on living organisms.Parasites feed on living organisms.
    Examples: Mushrooms (fungi)Example: Plasmodium, Cuscuta
  9. Those plants that eat insects by trapping them are called insectivorous plants. They obtain protein from insects. For example- Pitcher plants and venus fly trap.
    1. Name- Mushroom.
      Category - Saprophytes.
    2. Name – Pitcher plant.
      Category – Insectivores.
    3. Name – Cuscuta.
