Nice quiz, but needs a lot of work. Tried micro organism, microbe, etc for microbiologist, none of them were accepted. "Microscopic plants and animals" is a big walk around the park... "Volcanos" is also an acceptable spelling. Take care with plurals and singulars, not being able to respond "plant" when you can answer "bird" is weird. Try to systematize that a little better.

I agree micro organism should be an acceptable answer for the microbiologist question. Good quiz though. Got 8 out of 10.

An orNithologist studies birds. Orthinology is the study of word-botching - look it up on the Collins dictionary web site. Don't worry, I knew what you meant but had a laugh when I looked it up.

Yeah, the ornithology needs to be reflected upon, and you need some alternate answers for microbiology. After microorganisms, bacteria, viruses, eukaryotes, prokaryotes, single-celled organisms, and even "tiny living things," I just gave up. Having said that, there's way too much time allotted, once those items are fixed.

Still not fixed, but yea, the bird one should be changed. And volcano singular should be accepted, and/or the alternate spelling of volcanos.

Oddly enough when dinosaurs for paleontologist didnt work ( which tried cause I thought I had seen it as an answer on another quiz) I tried ancient animals, cause couldnt think of the exact answer, and that was accepted ! haha
