Solution :-

Some insectivorous plants like Drosera, Nepenthes, Utricularia are partially heterotrophic plants. These plants are deficient in nitrogen content but are otherwise autotrophic. They trap various insects to obtain nitrogen from them. Rest, the food i.e., carbohydrate is manufactured by themselves by the process of photosynthesis.
