Nitpicking - #9: "its" instead of "it's"

Great quiz!

The "its" needs to be fixed, and so does the "promoter sequence" (not "promotor sequence", unless you're in favor of listing car engines in order).

It actually is either promotor or promoter, so it was actually fine originally. Please check your answers before correcting someone. I am personally used to seeing it as promotor though.

Well done! I am amazed at how much the examples for topics I know about read like normal sentences and make total sense to me, and the others sound like made up gibberish!

Great sequel, only thing I can think to improve it is if you tell us what the hell they mean in an explanation. It's great that we get the subject but a brief resume of the sentence would be great.

Thanks! I considered doing that, but I think for some of these I would need to write an entire paragraph, for example the Calculus and Microbiology questions.

Great idea; I think you could take it further and offer answers which are more varied - for instance 11 and 13 sound like they could come from a film, the seamount one could be from a science fiction book, and maybe the street directions one could have a computer game as a possible answer?

I guessed quantum physics for the calculus one, as a "jump discontinuity" sounded a bit exotic for calculus, but what do I know.

Great quiz! I believe however that you should change 'microbiology' (study of bacteria, viruses etc) to 'molecular biology' (study of biologically important molecules and chemical reactions).

Great quiz! I'm going to echo Borsuk that #5 needs to be changed from microbiology (study of microscopic organisms) to molecular biology (study of biological processes at the molecular level), having studied both.

Great quiz, I'm curious how you would come up with these questions. My only nitpick is that 'Q double prime' could be better expressed as Q", no need to write it out.

Enjoyed this quiz a lot! But I am also going to echo both Borsuk and RedCait that #5 should be relabeled from "microbiology" (study of microbes) to "molecular biology" (study of molecules). Also, synthesis of RNA during transcription occurs in the 5' to 3' direction, not 3' to 5'
