About This Quiz

The human body is fascinating. It's made up of approximately 200 different types of cells. And when you consider the different functions of each cell, from Microglial cells (in the central nervous system) to Erythrocyte cells (red blood cells), our breathing, walking and ability to heal, is a biological and chemical marvel. To make it even more amazing, there are about 20 different types of structures or organelles within the different types of cells. In most cases, all these functions work perfectly and automatically. They are only brought into our consciousness when they don't work, (stomach ache, shortness of breath, wound that doesn't heal, etc. )

But biology doesn't start and stop with the human body. It includes all fauna and flora from microscopic to macroscopic. Yet within this vast range, you'll find the same Eukaryotic cells, Prokaryotic cells, and bacteria. Although there is so much to know, you'll quickly recall the process of photosynthesis, the power of dominant and recessive genes, and the scientist who helped in each step of discovery and understanding. Ready to try your hand at a quiz that needs an almost genius level IQ? (Genius level =140+.) Go on, ace all the biology questions in this quiz and show off the gifted student you truly are.
