WHAT ARE ACELLULAR ORGANISMS?GIVE THREE EXAMPLES ////////////////////////////.

@angela: you are right. 

Acellular organisms are those organisms that are not composed of cells. They are different from other celled organisms in that they cannot divide, they cannot reproduce on their own, and they lack the ability to synthesize proteins.

 Examples provided by angela are correct. Kindly refer to it.

Dear friend,

Acellular organisms are not organisms at all, but rather viruses. Viruses are not living organisms, though they sometimes behave as though they were. They are merely particles of genetic material and other organic compounds folded together into a membrane like that of a cell. What makes acellular particles different from other celled organisms are; they cannot divide, they cannot reproduce on their own, and they lack the ability to synthesize proteins. All of these things are done by even Prokaryotic (one-celled) organisms and is the basic metric by which we measure life.Describing tissues, organs, or organisms consisting of a mass of protoplasm not divided by cell walls into discrete units. The term may be used of relatively large uninucleate organisms, such as the alga Acetabularia, to distinguish them from comparatively less specialized and smaller unicellular organisms. More often acellular structures are multinucleate and result from free nuclear division with no accompanying cell wall formation. When describing multinucleate organisms, tissues, or cells the term is synonymous with coenocytic.

Examples are- Fungal Hyphae,,Algae of the order Siphonales and 
endosperm of certain angio-sperms.
