6.  The law which explains the decrease in the energy transfer at successive trophic levels:
a)  Lindemann's Law
b)  Allen's Rule
c)  Jordan's Rule
d)  Bergmann's Rule
e)  Blackmann's Law

Dear student

Please refer the solution below for the said query

The correct option is (a).
Raymond Lindeman (1942) gave 10% law of energy transfer in an ecosystem. According to this law only 10% of energy is transfered from one trophic level to another and rest of the energy is lost as metabolic heat. Hence resulting in decrease in energy transfer at each successive trophic level.

Hope this information clears your doubt about the topic.
