    The correct answers are:

    Decomposers break down the remains of dead plants and animals. Decomposers release carbon dioxide into the air as waste.

    Decomposers are heterotrophic organisms that break down dead or decaying organisms, and the process that they are doing is called decomposition. The primary decomposers within the ecosystem are fungi and bacteria. Decomposition is an important process because it allows organic material to be recycled (release carbon dioxide through respiration).
