  • Q4
    What is the difference between mutualism and commensalism in symbiotic relationships?
    Mutualism occurs between organisms of the same species, while commensalism occurs between organisms of different species.
    Mutualism involves competition for resources, while commensalism involves cooperation.
    In mutualism, both organisms benefit from the relationship, whereas in commensalism, only one organism benefits while the other is unaffected.
    Mutualism is a short-term relationship, while commensalism is a long-term relationship.
    Mutualism benefits one organism at the expense of the other, while commensalism benefits both organisms equally.
