1. What does it take to be a living organism?

2. The general public does not always use the terms 'hypothesis' and 'theory' in the same manner that biologists do. Find an example of how the terms are used by the public and explain how it differs from a biologist's approach.

 

A living organism requires genetic material, a cell membrane, and the ability to multiply on its own. Viruses contain genetic material and may have a membrane but they do not have the ability to multiple on their own and therefore are not living.

 

Hypothesis is a testable theory. It is the statement of an expectation that may or may not be true and through experimentation, that theory may be tested and either proven or disproven.
