Solution

The correct options are
A They contain chlorophyll.
C They grow in nitrogen deficient soil.
D Their leaves are modified.
  • Insectivorous plants contain chlorophyll, hence they can manufacture their own food.
  • They grow in nitrogen deficient soil due to which they feed on insects.
  • They trap insects through their modified leaves to obtain the nitrogen required for their growth. E.g., venusflytrap, utricularia, drosera, etc.
