The correct answer is (d) Predation
 
The best explanation: Predation is the reason for energy flow from one organism to another. It is an interaction in which an organism (predator) is benefited by killing another organism (prey). It is the ecological process of energy transfer and best-known examples involve carnivorous interactions.
