Amoebas are unicellular. The single cell splits in half to form two new cells. A student claims amoebas are alive. Is the student correct?

A.The student is not correct; amoebas are not alive because they are only made of one cell.

The student is not correct; amoebas are not alive because there is no male and female contributing to make new offspring.

The student is correct; amoebas are alive because they become multicellular. (my answer)

The student is correct; amoebas are alive because they reproduce even though it is different than traditional sexual reproduction.

  2. I am not a biologist; however, I think your answer is incorrect because amoebas, even when they split into two, are not multicellular. They are still single cell organisms. The correct answer, I think, is the next one down on the list.

  3. They are alive because anything that can reproduce, whether it be sexually or asexually, uses and makes its on ATP. This is what essentially classifies an organism as living. Dr. Bob222 is correct.

    3. Cells are made of smaller parts called organelles. These organelles act like a body’s organs, carrying out functions to help the cell obtain energy, reproduce, etc. Using what you know about the characteristics of living things, would you argue that organelles are alive?

    No, organelles are not alive because they do not respond to the environment.
    No, organelles are not alive because a cell is the smallest unit that can carry out the functions of life.
    Yes, organelles are alive because they help the cell reproduce, which is a characteristic of life.
