Minh’s Notes

Human-readable chicken scratch

I took the AP Biology exam today. Do you mind if I ask you a question?

Describe the symbiotic relationship that anthrax has.

A few students taking the test in the same room as me (no names) answered with something along these lines:

Anthrax has a parasitic relationship with other organisms. Not only does anthrax receive a means of reproduction and cause harm to ordinary civilians (in which there would be a mutualistic relationship); it also causes harm to the terrorists who inherently get caught by the FBI and CIA.

Wasn’t this a biology exam?

Please note that no offense was meant to be taken by victims of any terrorist attacks. I apologize if this caused any emotional distress.
