The context clue, "self-sustaining cycle," lets us know that we're looking for a word
that describes how plants and animals manage to live in the same place without completely
destroying each other...
Although no one seems to have had a talk with the Venus flytrap.
Both "clash" and "collide" describe things slamming into each other...
Which doesn't exactly get across the idea of peace and harmony.
"Alternate" and "exchange" are on the right track, but both words describe things
switching places rather than living together side by side.
Since to "coexist" means to live in the same place at the same time,
(D) is the correct answer.
Shmoop would like to issue a formal apology to the Flytrap Anti-Defamation League for
our prior comment.
