The General Science GK Quiz Set-2

by Nitroquiz Official | GK Quiz

Science is not a course, as said by Einstein, it's a refinement of everyday thinking. It originated from our curiosities to learn and explore nature and the world. So far we have discovered various fundamental truths of nature, fundamental laws and limits are a few of them. There's so much more know and our existence and the gift of conscious thinking will only be meaningful as long as we use them to explore more and make lives worth living.

This is another science quiz set equally with a range of questions from physics and chemistry. Take the quiz and find out how much of science you know.
