Answer to Question #64520 in Ecology for Sanjukta Ghosh

Question #64520
I came across Lindeman's 10% law in school.
I was reading Ecology: Principles and Applications By J. L. Chapman, M. J. Reiss and they mentioned two contradictory statements:

1. The 10% law, i.e. the trophic efficiency is always 10%
2. The trophic efficiency increases with trophic level (which was substantiated by data).

This is the statistics:

What is right? Is Lindeman's 10% law actually valid?
