    E) genetic material composed of nucleic acid

    Explanation:

    It's not A because the virus can't live on its own, depends on a host to live and reproduce.

    It's not B because viruses are only a fragment of DNA, or RNA cover in a protein capsule, they don't have ribosomes.

    It's not C because again, viruses don't have a metabolism.

    It's not D because viruses need a host to reproduce. Bacteria can make it on its own.

    The correct one is E. Both genetic material in viruses, and bacteria are composed of nucleic acid.
