Explanation:

Bacteria and fungi can be cultured in artificial/synthetic medium. Bacteria can be grown in laboratory conditions using nutrient-rich media, and fungi can be cultured on synthetic media containing specific nutrients. Viruses, on the other hand, lack metabolic machinery and require host cells for their replication and cannot be cultured in artificial/synthetic medium alone.
