Most of the water surface of a lake is covered with algae. This algae is part of the food chain which also includes small fish, bird, larvae and big fish. Which of the following will obtain the maximum energy?
A. Big fish

B. Bird

C. Larvae

D. Small fish

Answer :

According to 10% energy rule, 10% of energy is transferred at each trophic level. In this food chain, larvae will have the maximum amount of energy because they are at the second trophic level in a food chain and we already know that energy decreases as it moves or flows in a food chain, so after algae, larvae will have maximum energy.
