Whenever I write, I also make so many mistakes but I don't see them until someone else points them out to me. What are some ways that I can edit my own work?
While having another person look over your work is a great way to edit, as they can pick up the gaps in logic that your own brain automatically fills, here are a few ways that can help you edit yourself. One of the easiest things to do is change the font and size of the text. Just this simple change forces your brain to look at what you have written differently, and can help you find mistakes in your writing as well has help spark new ideas. Another method is to read your work out loud. While it may sound and feel a bit awkward at first, reading out loud will highlight where the flow of your writing is off. You may subconsciously correct a mistake that you've written just by saying the sentence differently, or you may find that what you have written doesn't make much sense as it did when you first wrote it.

What can I do to help memorize facts for a test?
There are several ways to help memorize facts. One way is to take your notes and rewrite them. Using a coloring system for different subjects and facts can help with recall. Another way is taking your notes and erasing random important facts. As you are able to fill them back in, erase more and more, until you are eventually able to recall all the facts you want. Forming self made questions about the material can be an interesting exercise to test your knowledge. Another method is making and/or using flash cards. Whether they have vocab and definitions or questions and answers, having someone else test you by reading you a side will help test your memory. Testing yourself can be helpful, but can be less effective for some people.
A couple has just given birth to a baby girl. The father has an O blood type and the mother has an A blood type. What are the possible blood types for the baby?
The father's genotype can only be 'O-O' but the mother has two possible genotypes 'A-A' or 'A-O'. Using punnet squares, we can find that if the mother has 'A-A' blood type, then the baby can only have 'A-O' genotype with an A blood type. If the mother has 'A-O' blood type, then the baby has 2 possible genotypes of 'A-O' or 'O-O' with an A blood type or O blood type respectively. The baby has no chance of having B blood type.
