i dont really understand 4b)

so does the nitrates get absorbed into the plant for growth by making proteins. but i dont understand the second bullet point of more producers/consumer/food. how does more growth mean more producers/consumer/food.

Nitrogen is a component of amino acids, thus creating proteins allowing growth of plants, plants thriving means more producers, thus more food benefiting the primary consumers e.g. rabbits who eat grass who then thrive as a result and are able to reproduce and therefore growth.

Soz my SPAG isnt the greatest hope this helps

Yes asexually, also plants already existing can grow bigger without withering away and dying, so conditions are advantageous check this though to see if its relevant. And don't worry no question is silly!
