Answer

Irreversibilties are found in living system as living things are not in equilibrium with surrounding. for example human body temperature is around 37 deg C and if surrounding temperature is different let say 25 deg C then heat flows from body to surrounding. Heat transfer during finite temperature difference causes irreversibility.
