A certain plant requires moisture, oxygen, carbon dioxide, light, and minerals in order to survive. This statement shows that a living organism depends on:
A. biotic factors.
B. abiotic factors.

Abiotic factors are nonliving factors in an ecosystem such as the amount of water, light, pH, temperature, etc. These are climatic conditions that control what plants can live there. Obviously, a seaweed can't live in the desert.
