Solution

The correct option is B

Detritus food chain


Organic remains (dead plant parts, animal remains, and excretions) are also called detritus. A food chain, which begins with detritus or dead organic matter is called detritus food chain. In the system, the energy passes into decomposers and detritivores, then to smaller carnivores, then to larger carnivores and so on. Therefore, the given food chain is the detritus food chain.
