Organic chemistry quiz

Most chemistry courses at any level usually consist of a fairly big section on organic chemistry. Do you know what a homologous series is? Can you do calculations relating to organic compounds? Have you heard of saturated and unsaturated hydrocarbons? Do you understand addition and substitution reactions?

I have composed this quiz to cover the academic basics. It is at quite an elementary level and if you're a complete beginner then this quiz is for you. If you get over half marks then you should be a good GCSE chemistry candidate in the U.K. Good luck.
