How do you like this explanation on Symbiosis?

Question: Explain the symbiosis theory.
Answer: This is a theory that prokaryotes only existed in the beginning. Then they started to eat each other.  When this  happened,
they didn't digest their food all the way and it is thought that this was how organelles came about and eukaryotes were formed.
