Biology Quizzes & Trivia

Biology is the study of living organisms that cover their morphology, physiology, anatomy, behaviour, origin, and distribution. Reproduction is necessary to run this world whether its sexual or asexual reproduction. Asexual Reproduction means which involves one organism whereas, Sexual Reproduction needs both male and female. This quiz has been developed to test and increase your knowledge of biology. So, let's try out the quiz. All the best!
