    cant b A. coz question says they neither benefit or are harmed. cant b D. parasitism, becuase then one would have to benefit at expense of other that leaves B or C. I think its B, becuase the fish clean off the shark, but he also provides protection to them.

    Competition is between organisms fighting for the same food or shelter, in this case is not. Mutualism is when both organisms benefit and in the question it states that the shark doesn't benefit Commensalism is when one benefits while the other is unaffected Parasitism is when one benefits while the other is harmed.
