Genetics Quiz

In the following science quiz as issued by a school teacher for her pupils, we’ll be looking at the biological study of genetics, discovered by Gregor Mendel, which allows us to analyze a person’s genes, genetic variation and heredity to see if there are any patterns in the way traits are handed down from parents to offspring. What do you know about the study? Let’s find out.
