yeah definitely 0% ( i even said it out loud when i read the question).

ecgram.. there's no doubt u're in ur biochem study phase now.

dont believe the NBME answers. try finding ur own. if i were u i wouldnt even attempt it because it will mislead u as that's not NBME answers but students' answers. be careful k.
