    Decomposers break down the dead plants and animals in an ecosystem. They prevent the build-up of wastes and allow plants to receive nutrients.

    It's either C or D since they are allowing nutrients to keep passing through everything...maybe C, since plants take in carbon dioxide?

    I believe so. There seems to be more things on google about decomposers cycling carbon than oxygen. I would pick C.

    A) The birth rate is greater than the death rate. B) The birth rate is less than the death rate. C) The birth rate is equal to the death rate. D) The birth rate and the death rate are zero.

    Carrying capacity is the population being maintained with enough food and necessary resources. So it'll be C. since the birth rate and the death rate would be balanced.

    Umm not completely sure on this one. Though I do know that water, nitrogen, and carbon have their own cycles, so I would say to pick nitrogen.

    Also, when you give me the questions, how about you say which one you think it is upfront? Because we're not really supposed to just be giving out answers on here, but I'm pretty sure I'm allowed to tell you if your thinking was right :)
