For food production and energy production, plants require nutrients. Some plants that thrive in poor soil "eat" animals to obtain the nutrients they require. A pitcher plant draws insects with a sweet-smelling juice. Hairs that point downward prevent insects from escaping the plant's tube-shaped leaf after they have entered it. The insect plunges into the liquid-filled cavity of the leaf. The insect is disintegrated by the liquid, and the plant utilizes the nutrients. Why do plants consume insects or animals?

Correct! Wrong!

Plants eat animals or insects because they need the nutrients. In the passage, it is mentioned that some plants that grow in poor soil get the nutrients they need by "eating" animals. The pitcher plant, for example, attracts insects with a sweet-smelling liquid and then traps and dissolves them to obtain nutrients.
