Right choice is (c) Cattle and zooplankton
 
The best I can explain: Plants and phytoplankton belong to the category of primary consumers. Producers (primary consumers) are organisms that make their own food with the help of energy obtained from chemicals or the sun, water, and air. They are also known as autotrophs.
