2) Some cells: It divides living organisms into unicellular and multicellular.

3) Mode of nutrition: Organisms have two types of nutrition- autotrophic and heterotrophic

4)  Based on the organisms that perform photosynthesis (plants), what is the level of organization of their body, that is unicellular and multicellular
