Most organisms cannot directly use the energy from the sun to perform the seven life processes.

So how do they survive if they can not use sun's energy directly?

They will use it indirectly in the form of potential energy in other forms like food.

For example, a reptile can lie in the Sun to warm up from the heat energy, but this does not provide the necessary energy for that animal to move, reproduce or excrete waste.
Except for a few sea slugs, plants are the only organisms on Earth that can absorb the Sun's radiant energy and convert it into food for themselves and for other living organisms.
