B

C
Phototrophs

D
Saprotrophs

Solution

The correct option is A Autotrophs
  • Green plants are autotrophic organisms because they can synthesize their own food by photosynthesis. 
  • During photosynthesis energy from sunlight is converted into chemical energy in the form of organic compounds and oxygen is released as a by-product.
  •  Animals, fungi and several bacteria are heterotrophic organisms and depend on organic compounds synthesized by autotrophs for their nutrition.
  • So, the correct answer is 'Autotrophs'
