A ball of snow when rolled again over snow increases in mass, volume and size. Is this comparable to growth as seen in living organisms? Why?


#2

This is not growth, as increase in size of hall of snow is just because of the addition of similar external material. In living things, growth is due to increase in body material from inside.
