  1. Technically Correct Book Titles

    The Chronicles of Narnia book SHOULD be answer B because there SHOULD be a second comma. Long live the Oxford Comma!!!!
  2. Harry Potter Sorting Gallery
    23
    (Embarrassed I selected Grawp as one of Hagrid's pets. I knew it was wrong even as I clicked it.)
  3. Original Titles of Foreign Literature
    21
    The foreign titles *are* the original titles...this quiz should be asking for the English translations of the original titles.
  4. Technically Correct Book Titles
    17
    OXFORD COMMA IS CORRECT.
  5. Deathly Hallows
    15
    I got all three, so am I the master of Death now?
  6. Deathly Hallows

    It really is brilliant how JK Rowling set up the Deathly Hallows (or at least one of them) ever since Harry's first Christmas at Hogwarts.
  7. Harry Potter Sorting Gallery
    13
    I know what you wanted us to say, but as far as us Brits are concerned there never was a film called 'Sorcerer's Stone' (not one that was ever released over here anyway). All our films were named after the original novels.
  8. Harry Potter Sorting Gallery
    13
    Will anyone else point out that it wasn't Alastor Moody who taught the Defense Against the Dark Arts class, but rather his imposter, Barty Crouch, Jr.? At least including an asterisk or Crouch in parentheses would be much appreciated.
  9. Original Titles of Foreign Literature

    I know a winter's night a vegetable. Nope. That wasn't it.
  10. Technically Correct Book Titles

    I was so confused by this quiz. The title of the quiz says to pick which book title is correct when considering capitalization, punctuation, and lettering, and it's called "Technically Correct Book Titles." This all led me to believe I was supposed to choose the grammatically correct title, so I didn't even think to check the How to Play. And either way, OXFORD COMMA FOR LIFE!
