Biology Test 2 Bratis

This is a biology quiz. It is meant to help me prepare for my test tomorrow. It incorporates a bunch of useless things that no one really cares about at all.

I know that it means nothing to you. And thats fine. It is all information that you will forget tomorrow anyways. If you are not taking an exam tomorrow with professor Bratis than I suggest you go to a new quiz.
