Organism Quizzes & Trivia

All living organisms are classified into groups based on very basic, shared characteristics. The three groups are Archaea: very ancient prokaryotic microbes. Two types of living things can be generalized to prokaryotes (which are bacteria and archaea) and eukaryotes (which are animals, plants, protists, and fungi). This quiz has been made to test your knowledge on the Classification of Living Things. Let's try out this quiz. All the best!
