I've been set a question in my biology homework, can anybody help me?
Q. If you have no colorimeter, it is still possible to make the Benedict's test quantitative. How can this be done?

It would be partially/semi quantitative. The resulting colour would give some indication of the relative conc of sugar in the samples: green to yellow to orange to red precipitates show increasing conc of sugar.
No exact values, just estimates
