Solution

Man is an omnivore, that is, he can feed on both plants and animals. Thus, a man can be a primary consumer when he consumes plant products such as cereals, fruits and vegetables and he can be a secondary consumer when he consumes herbivores such as goat and sheep (in the form of their meat). Thus, a man can be placed at the second as well as the third trophic level of the food chain.
