A woman once had a beautiful rubber tree, but when her sister saw her watering it, she laughed and asked why she was watering an artificial plant. So she stopped watering the plant, and in a few months it died. Explain, using at least five characteristics of living things, how she could have determined that the plant was living without killing it.

    How could the woman have checked at least five of these things? Hint: one is to see if it develops new leaves.
