Viruses: Living or Nonliving?


A virus is a very unusual kind of organism. For one thing, its structure can hardly be called a cell. It does not have the usual parts of a cell. So for you is it a living thing or nonliving thing?

    How can you say it would not be suitable to call viruses as living thing if it is alive when it is inside the cell? But the mystery is that it is nonliving when it is outside the cell.
