Expert Answer:

Since, only 10% energy is transferred from one trophic level  to the next trophic  level.
So, 10% of energy available at sheep =  energy available at man = 5J
So,  energy available at sheep = 50 J
Also, producer consume 1% of energy available from sun , 
So, 1% of energy available at plant =  500 J
