2. Respiration- organisms oxidize food to obtain water

3. Excretion- removal of metabolic wastes

5. Irritability- organisms detect stimuli and make corresponding responses

6. Growth- organsims grow by increasing size and complexity

7. Reproduction- organisms reproduce offspring similar to themselves
