Biology Quiz: Basic Questions Of Histology Part- I

Histology is a branch of biology that studies the microscopic anatomy of biological tissues, and it's also knowns as microanatomy. This quiz is part one of a series of questions that will test your knowledge of this topic. So, without further ado, let's get started!
