c) Eggs- Third trophic level/Secondary consumer. Egg comes from chicken which feeds on plants. Chicken are the primary consumer and eating a substance obtained from chicken will make the person a secondary consumer which is at the third trophic level, again.


d) Apple- Second trophic level/Primary consumer. Apple is obtained from plants. Eating products from plants will make a person primary consumer which is the second trophic level.


e) Fish-Fourth trophic level/Tertiary consumer. Fish is a carnivore which feeds on flesh of other animals. So fish is a secondary consumer. Eating fish will make a person tertiary consumer which is at the fourth trophic level.
