    Larvae are the ones who just hatchet out of the egg and focus their energy on collecting food and nutrients. In butterflies, it would be the caterpillar. Then in the pupa stage, the larva morphs into the adult form, in butterflies, it would be in a cacoon and unmoving. I unfortunately do not have an answer cause I'm not really sure but maybe this helps.

    I'm going to eliminate b since both do not reproduce, only adults do.

    Not really reproducing, only changing, it isn't producing a new individual.

    Think of the pupa stage as a rebirth.

    I agree with Shirley's logic, but it is entirely up to you whether or not to accept his/her advice. I always say to go with the answer you have a gut feeling on if you're not sure, but sometimes you should listen to those who try to help out :)

    I would also eliminate d since insects don't produce their own food.

    Well, for shelter, one is in the open, and one is in a cacoon, for feeding, one is actively finding food while the other isn't eating at all... except I'm not sure if a caccoon counts as shelter.
