Atlas Quiz

The following quiz is designed to help you learn how to use the appropriate atlas breeding codes and how to deal with real-life situations while you are out atlassing. Almost all questions have been inspired by actual questions submitted by participants. In some cases, you may find that you would have interpreted a situation differently, but one of the goal of the quiz is also to try promoting a consistent approach by all participants when faced with similar conditions. If you have new questions to suggest, we encourage you to submit them to the atlas office.
