Biology Midterm Practice Test: Quiz

Do you know biology? Genetic studies have contributed to the eradication of cultural myths. In the past, only women were solely responsible for not being able to have children. Now new research has determined that the man is also accountable for this. The sex of children is determined by the sperm of the man and not by the women's ovaries. Test your biological knowledge and your luck with this quiz.
