20 Lysol kills 99.99% of all bacteria, which means there is.01 that is not killed. Will Lysol work better on the next generation of bacteria, or worse? Why?

22 Recap:  What is natural selection?  How does evolution still affect our thoughts today?

23  What was hard about the quiz?  What was easy about the quiz?  What is something you wished we would have spent more time learning about?
