(A) is the right answer.

The viruses are non-cellular organisms that are characterised by having an inert crystalline structure outside the living cell. Once they infect a cell they take over the machinery of the host cell to replicate themselves, killing the host.The name virus that means venom or poisonous fluid was given by Pasteur.
