Human Quizzes & Trivia

Each chromosome in the human body is made up of DNA. One chromosome from each of your 23 pairs came from each of your parents and this is why you find off springs having some features from their parents. Take up this quiz and see how much you understood from chapter 10 on chromosomes and inheritance.
