In the biosphere,which of the following is NOT constantly recycled?

A) carbon

B) nitrogen

C) water

D) energy

E) phosphorus

A

Answer: D. Energy.

Explanation: Unlike carbon, nitrogen, water, and phosphorus which can be converted and recycled as it moves from one level of an ecosystem’s food chain to another, energy can only be transferred from one form to another, but it can never be recycled.

However, energy is lost at each transfer.
