The things which can talk move respond to anything then they are living things. Like- crow,fox,dog,human The things which do not move talk or respons to anything then they are said to be non living things. Like-machine,T.V. basically anything that can reproduce is considered as a living thing and those that cannot reproduce are nonliving things
There are plenty of similarities! Both living and nonliving entities are composed of the same building blocks (or chemical elements), which you can look up in the periodic table. Living things, however, don't make use of all the elements found in the periodic table. And the ratio of elements in living things differs. So, living things might use more carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen and oxygen, in comparison to the other elements.
This is (generally) referring to a VIRUS particle. Viruses can reproduce (a characteristic of living organisms) but may also be crystallised (a characteristic of non-living organisms). For this reason, a good number of scientists prefer not to talk of a virus as a living thing and even find discord classifying it under the normal taxonomic concepts and rules.
Why are living things as different as single-celled amoebas and multicelled humans both considered to be organisms?
I assume that you can already think how it can be a non-living thing that is constructed of dead trees to enclose a specific area. A fence could be naturally occurring depending on your view point. A fence could be a row of hedges. It acts as a barrier to certain things and is still a living organism. Also, you could have a thicket of trees around an area. The thicket prevents people from wandering…
Actually, bacteria and viruses have almost no similarities at all. First of all, viruses are not even considered living by most scientists because they are very simple in structure and cannot reproduce by themselves. Also, the only thing they really have in common with any living thing is that they both have DNA.
Living Organisms are Conscious, non-living are not. Living can reproduce, non living cannot. Living can metabolize organic materials and grow, non-living cannot. Living organisms can move on themselves, non-living cannot. Living react to external environment (both biotic and abiotic), non-living cannot. There can be so many. These are the top 5.
What a thought-provoking question! Scientists have established criteria about whether a "thing" is living or non-living. For example, two common criteria are respiration and reproduction. However, DNA is actually a chemical compound, and chromosomes are nucleic acids and protein. So, neither one is considered living; both are non-living.
