    Well, I'm pretty sure it's the last option: contains mostly carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, and nitrogen. I'm using a process of elimination here. The 1st choice can only apply to living things, because only living organisms have biological cells (as well as ones that maintain homeostasis). The 2nd choice can only apply to living things, because only living organisms carry out metabolic reactions. (A metabolism is a set of chemical reactions that happens in living cells.) The 3rd choice can only apply to living things, because only living organisms can reproduce and have offspring. And that leaves the 4th choice!
