Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Heterotroph is an organism that cannot produce its own food and as an alternative gets its food and energy by absorbing organic substances, generally plant or animal matter.

Autotroph is an organism that is able to produce nutritional organic substances from simple inorganic substances for example carbon dioxide.

Amixotroph or bitroph is an organism that can utilize a mix of diverse sources of energy and carbon, rather than having a single trophic mode on the scale from entire heterotrophy at one end to autotrophy at the other.

Ciliaare slender, microscopic, hair-like structures or organelles that expand from the surface of almost all mammalian cells (multiple or single).

Aflagellum is a whip-like structure that lets a cell to move. They are originated in all three domains of the living world: bacteria, archaea, and eukaryota, also recognized as protists, plants, animals, and fungi.

Algaeare photosynthetic organisms that arise in most habitats. They differ from small, single-celled forms to compound multi-cellular forms

Protozoaare single-celled micro-organisms that obtain their food from the neighboring environment. Scientists would say 'they are heterotrophs'.
