Because both organisms benefit in the relationship in some way. For example, Ants and aphids are usually close in a habitat. Aphids release this sugary fluid that ants like to feed on and in return the ants protect the aphids.

It's not really a relationship so much a category. There's 3 symbiotic relationships. Mutualism, Commensalism, and Parisitism. Mutualism means both organisms involved get something out of it. Commensalism means one gets something good out of it, while the other gets nothing. Parisitism is when one gets something good, while the other is harmed.

No, parasitism is good for one of the organisms and bad for the other. Commensalism is good for one of the organisms and doesn't affect the other. Mutualism benefits both organisms.

Mutualism is a relationship when 2 living organisms benefit from each other's presence. Good example? You and bacteria living in your stomach. The bacteria helps with digestion of food, while you are giving them a place to live. Need more? Bees and flower - bees receive food (pollen and nectar) while the plant benefits from the bees pollinating them.
