Living cell organisms are alive and non-living organisms are dead.

There are a number of different criteria for what it means to be living. For instance: metabolism, the ability to react to a stimuli, and so forth. If an organism does not exhibit any of these qualities, it can be concluded that the organism is not living.

An example: a table is a non-living thing. A cat is a living thing.

the important differences between living things need a suitable habitat that supplies their basic needs for oxygen,food,and water.

and non living things don't need a suitable habitat that supplies their basice needs for oxygen,food,and water.
