Insects are intentionally excluded.
If needed, the last "life-form" would develop ways to sustain itself, including eating each other.
If the options are confusing, go with your gut. Examples: horse is a land animal; penguin is a bird; apple tree is a plant.

ETA: Sustaining itself includes its respiratory ability - it would evolve or adapt as needed, too.
