    I just looked at the answers and I got 4/6 I didn't know leaves change colour because of temperature and that they have carotene. Also I didnt cheat lol eventhough my brain was tempted xd.

    With no cheating I also got 5/6 - i got the last question wrong. I had no idea about the pigment so took a wild guess and was wrong but oh well :3

    @Amy22 It's quite interesting why leaves change colour as I think it's to do with the different pigments that absorb light and when autumn comes there's less of the green chlorophyll pigment? We learned about it in biology but it's been a while! There's different types of chlorophyll for helping absorb light for photosynthesis.

    I only remember this because I loved biology at school, particularly plant biology for some reason, but I know a lot of people weren't a fan and preferred animal/human biology

    @lunarcat522 I also loved biology at school and learning about plants was super fun!. I also did the quiz on my Instagram too and similar answers. I did the instagram quiz straight after the quiz on here even though I knew the answers lol but I had a guess.
