Solution :-

All living organisms on the earth directly or indirectly dependent on soil for a living. Plants obtain water and minerals through the soil and prepare their food. Other living organisms that live in water are entirely not totally independent of soil because the microbes growing on the soil in water are the primary producers. Primary producers are the main and chief element of the food chain. Various microbes found in soil help in the decomposition of dead plants and animals in water which helps in returning the nutrients and elements back to the water.
