Forests are ecosystems that are dominated by trees and other vegetation. They are important habitats for a wide variety of plant and animal species, and they also play important roles in regulating the earth's climate and water cycles. Forests provide a range of products and services that are used by human societies, such as wood for construction and fuel, non-timber forest products like berries, nuts, and medicinal plants, and ecological services like carbon sequestration and water purification.

Wildlife, or wild animals, are animals that are not domesticated or tamed. They play important roles in maintaining the ecological balance of their habitats and provide important benefits to humans, such as recreational opportunities and ecological services like pollination and seed dispersal. Wildlife also has cultural and spiritual significance for many human societies.
Here are the MCQs where you may practice your current IQ with respect to knowing your kingdom with flora and fauna.
