We'll be honest, biology trivia might be the toughest subject of all. Derived from the Greek meaning “study of life”, biology literally helps us understand how living things have come to be and interact with each other on Earth.

From microscopic bacteria and viruses to more complex organisms such as humans, everything has a place in “The Circle of Life” (thanks Lion King.) Having a good understanding of biology is key in making sure we stay healthy. It also helps to ensure we have a better, bigger, and greener lawn than our neighbors.

Even if you don't think you are a biology whiz, take our quiz to see just how much you might have retained from your last row in high school biology class!
