54 Questions | Attempts: 720
Share  Settings  Gases are all around us and they are all unique in their own way be it in behavior or location they are found. In chapter fourteen we got to understand the behavior of various gasses and their qualities. The quiz below is designed to test how well you understood that. Give it a try!
