What is autotrophism and how do green plants synthesize their food?

Autotrophism is the ability of living organisms to produce their own food. Green plants synthesize their food through the process of photosynthesis, using carbon dioxide, water, and sunlight energy.

How do humans obtain their food and what is their role in food production?

Humans obtain their food from both plants and animals. They have the role of growing plants and rearing animals to meet their own requirements of food.

Why can't animals synthesize their own food and how do they obtain their nutrients?

Animals cannot synthesize their own food because they lack the necessary enzymes and organelles. They obtain their nutrients by consuming other organisms, either plants or other animals.

What is photosynthesis and how does it help green plants?

Photosynthesis is the process by which green plants use carbon dioxide gas and water, along with sunlight energy, to produce their own food (carbohydrates, fats, and proteins) and release oxygen into the environment.

How do humans obtain their food and what does it involve?

Humans obtain their food from both plants and animals, and this involves growing plants and rearing animals to meet their own requirements of food nutrients like carbohydrates, fats, and proteins.

Why is it difficult for animals to make their own food?

Animals cannot make their own food because they lack the ability to synthesize nutrients from inorganic substances like carbon dioxide gas and water, and therefore require ready-made organic food nutrients like carbohydrates, fats, and proteins for growth and development.

What is the process by which green plants make their food?

Photosynthesis

What are the readymade organic food nutrients required by man and other animals?

Carbohydrates, fats, and proteins

What is a crop?

A large-scale cultivation of the same kind of plants for food
