Autotrophs are the organism that can prepare their own food . They didn’t dependent of others for preparation of their food. They prepare their food in the presence of sunlight by the process called photosynthesis . Basically , autotrophs include plants especially green plants . They prepare food and consume it and also provides us oxygen .
Heterotrophs are the organism that cannot prepare their own food. They are dependent on plant products and animal products for fulfilling their body demand .
We can say that the autotrophs are at first level of food chain animals and humans are at third level of food chain
Plants =====goat==== humans
In this plants are autotrophs prepare their own food goats are dependent of plants so they are known as primary consumer and goat are eaten by human they are called as secondary consumer .
Hope you will be satisfied with my answer.
