What determines one's blood type, and what can result if blood types are mixed? These are among the topics you'll need to know to successfully answer the questions presented in this quiz and corresponding worksheet.

Quiz and Worksheet Goals

In these assessments, you'll be tested on:

  • The antigens present when one has Type AB blood
  • Antibodies produced when one has Type B blood
  • The result when one with Type B blood receives a transfusion of Type O blood
  • The blood type regarded as the Universal Recipient
  • The result when one receives a blood transfusion with an incompatible blood type

Skills Practiced

This worksheet and quiz will allow you to test the following skills:
