You Slytherined that one up.

There's clearly quite a lot of J.K. Rowling in Hermione (and vice versa) but a Harry Potter fan shouldn't have this much trouble telling them apart. Go back and re-read all seven books, then try again.

You did well, but you're no J.K. Rowling expert. You should watch all 59,872 of her TV interviews and then try again.
