    Two different types of succession-primary and secondary-have been distinguished. Primary succession occurs in essentially lifeless areas-regions in which the soil is incapable of sustaining life as a result of such factors as lava flows, newly formed sand dunes, or rocks left from a retreating glacier.

    Answer: Option C

    Explanation: The main difference between the primary succession and secondary succession is that the growth of the plant species takes place on any substrate other than soil.

    Whereas in case of secondary succession, the growth of plant species takes place where there is a presence of soil soil nutrients.
