Solution

The correct option is C Both 1 and 2
In ecology, a niche is a term describing the relational position of a species or population in an ecosystem. The description of a niche may include descriptions of the organism's life history, habitat, and place in the food chain. According to the competitive exclusion principle, no two species can occupy the same niche in the same environment for a long time.
