What is living?
To be considered a living thing, certain traits have to be included in the organism. Such as needing sunlight and nutrients(food), respiration, movement and the ability to reproduce. For example, a hippo is living because it eats, it breathes, it moves, and it has the ability to reproduce babies. Apple juice is not alive because, it doesn't need food.. It is food.. It doesn't breathe, it doesn't move and cannot reproduce other juices..
Hahaha. Thanks ryle!!:)
