Take the evolution pop quiz given to first-year biology students

How do you stack up?

When it comes to evolution, there are a whole lot of misconceptions out there, such as the fact that there are different 'races' of humans, or that it's all about survival of the fittest (rather than survival and propagation).

So when it comes to the basics, how much do you really know? To find out, take the evolution pop quiz that biology professor, James Morris, gives to his students on the first day of class at Brandeis University in Massachusetts, which has been put online by the Futurity team.

Sure, the questions seem pretty straightforward, but there are some assumptions in there that are bound to trip a few people up. So take the test and see how you rate compared to the rest of the Internet. Good luck!
