Biology IGCSE Quiz! Trivia Exam

How much do you know about biology? Biology has made a lot of progress. The goal of biology is to improve our lives through controlled inheritance, genetic engineering, the study of vitamins, hormones, cancer research, and the environment. Many studies have been performed to determine air pollution's consequences on man, plants, and animals. This ultimate quiz on biology will indeed prepare you for an exam if needed.
