I am giving her a book and she is giving me a book, representing a mutual exchange. Mutualism is when both are benefitting.

Commensalism

In this picture, I am giving her a shot which helps her fight off illnesses but does nothing to benefit me. A commensalism relationship is when one benefits and the other isn't effected.

Parasitism

Being a criminal is a bad thing, so being arrested and taken off the streets is a good thing. Parasitism is when there is a benefit for one thing and negative for another.

Food Chain

the hawk is a tertiary consumer because it eats the secondary consumer but it is not hunted like everthing else and is at the top of the food chain.

plants are the only things that take in carbon from the air and this benefits us because we need carbon but we can only get it through eating and plants are a direct source for that.
