User: You can see, smell, and taste microorganisms.

Weegy: No. Being a human, it's not exactly possible to be aware of the smells or tastes of microorganisms due to how small they are & how big we are. [ Unless, they're like fungi or something which bunches together in which case, you'll be able to see a cluster of them. It is also possible, by human methods, to manipulate circumstances so that you can see the other smaller ones (e.g. virus) with microscopes or by experiments. ]
