Why the huge difference between men and women?. The test is cool!

Mamen, I’ve read of color-blindness differences between men and women in the past, but I’m not certain of the reasons. I’m happy that I’m not the one out of twelve men with a color vision deficiency. :) I know several people with color vision problems, and it seems that red is a particular area of difficulty for some.

Glad you had fun with the test. I thought it was cool too.
