comment Why are men stronger than women?
I find your first subanswer somewhat vague. The Q is probably asking if there are evolutionary reasons why men are on average psysically stronger than women (see Sex differences in human physiology#strength). How strong we are in comparison to other animals isn't really relevant for this question. However, sex differences in species closely related to us is interesting to understand our evolutionary history.

For the record, I don't think the Q should be closed as opinion-based. As currently stated, I find it unclear with poor background, but there is a relevant Q on the evolution of sexual differences in humans hiding in there.

comment Why are men stronger than women?
You should clarify your question, and your reason for asking. I assume that you are asking about a difference in average physical strength of sexes (and evolutionary reasons for this), but the Q can be read in other ways as well. Also, differences in body size/strength between sexes is common in many animals (see Sexual dimorphism), and this is usually not to "dominate women" but often (when males are larger/stronger) used in male-male competition.

comment Understanding the Amino Acids
@bolbteppa ok, sorry. My mistake and badly formulated. I guess I read your Q as asking for a way to structure information in general, and not dealing with biological properties. Either way, nomenclatural Qs are on-topic so my mistake.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about memorization techniques - maybe academia.SE might be suitable?

comment Are Asian people shorter than Europeans?
See @har-wradim answer. Remember that 150 years is only a couple of human generations, and this drastic change is would require an extremely strong selection pressure. For the most part, this increase in height is caused by the shift from a poor mostly agricultural population to an industrialised, well-fare nation. Also remember that a similar shift has been observed in many industrial countries.
