Which of the following gets the minimum energy through the food chain in an ecosystem?
A. Carnivore

B. Large carnivore

C. Producer

D. Herbivore

Answer :

According to the ten percent energy rule, 10% energy is transferred at each trophic level; so the organism that is at the top in a food chain will receive the lowest amount of energy. Hence, large carnivore which will be at the top in food chain will get minimum amount of energy through the food chain.(Producer-herbivore-carnivore-large carnivore)
