Solution

Explanation: 2 Marks
Examples: 1 Mark

Carnivorous plants derive some or most of the nutrients (but not energy) by trapping small animals and insects. They are adapted to grow in places where the soil is poor in nutrients, especially nitrogen. So, to obtain this nitrogen, they depend on other organisms.
Examples: Venus flytrap, Pitcher plant etc.
