A Quiz On Cells And Body Systems! Trivia

A quiz on cells and body systems trivia! Cells are the building blocks for all living things. Cells band together to form tissues, which in turn form organs that intern form the body systems. Each system in the body is tasked with achieving a given function. The digestive system is tasked with breaking down food, absorbing nutrients, and removing waste. Do take up the quiz and test your understanding of cell parts and function within the human body!
