  1. First, which wizard gets assigned to the Prime Minister's office after Voldemort's return?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Kingsley Shacklebolt

    "'I'm not getting rid of Kingsley Shacklebolt, if that's what you're suggesting!' said the Prime Minister hotly. 'He's highly efficient, gets through twice the work the rest of them—' 'That's because he's a wizard,' said Scrimgeour, without a flicker of a smile."

  2. Why does the Order of the Phoenix move out of 12 Grimmauld Place after Sirius's death?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Even though Sirius left Harry the house, they were afraid the deed would pass to Bellatrix

    "'And if such enchantments exists, then the ownership of the house is most likely to pass to the eldest of Sirius's living relatives, which would mean his cousin, Bellatrix Lestrange.'"

  3. On the Weasley's magical clock, what are all of the hands pointed to when Harry arrives at the Burrow?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Mortal peril

    "It had nine hands, each inscribed with the name of a family member, and usually hung on the Weasleys' sitting room wall, though, its current position suggested that Mrs. Weasley had taken to carrying it around the house with her. Every single one of its nine hands was now pointing at 'mortal peril.'"

  4. What nickname does Ginny give Fleur?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Phlegm

  5. How did Ginny end up at the Slug Club meeting on the Hogwarts Express?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Slughorn caught Ginny performing a really good hex

    "'He saw me hex Zacharias Smith,' said Ginny... 'I hexed him — when Slughorn came in I thought I was going to get detention, but he just thought it was a really good hex and invited me to lunch! Mad, eh?'"

  6. Who finds Harry on the Hogwarts Express after Malfoy breaks his nose and leaves him under the Invisibility Cloak?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Tonks

    "There was a flash of red light and Harry's body unfroze, he was able to push himself into a more dignified sitting position, hastily wipe the blood off his bruised face with the back of his hand, and raise his head to look up at Tonks, who was holding the Invisibility Cloak she had just pulled away."

  7. Whose memory does Dumbledore show Harry during their first meeting of the year?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Bob Ogden

    "'Who was Bob Ogden?' 'He was employed by the Department of Magical Law Enforcement,' said Dumbledore. 'He died some time ago, but not before I tracked him down and persuaded him to confide these recollections to me. We are about to accompany him on a visit he made in the course of his duties.'"

  8. During his first visit with Tom Riddle, what does Dumbledore have Tom take out of his wardrobe at the orphanage?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    A box of stuff he stole from other children

    "Riddle took off the lid and tipped the contents onto his bed without looking at them. Harry, who had expected something much more exciting, saw a mess of small, everyday objects: a yo-yo, a silver thimble, and a tarnished mouth organ among them... 'You will return them to their owners with your apologies,' said Dumbledore."

  9. At Slughorn's party, who does Slughorn introduce Harry to?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Eldred Worple and Sanguini

    "'Harry, I'd like you to meet Eldred Worple, an old student of mine, author of Blood Brothers: MY Life Amongst the Vampires — and, of course, his friend Sanguini.'"

  10. While learning to apparate, what are the "three D's" everyone must remember?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    "Destination, Determination, Deliberation"

    "'The important things to remember when Apparating are the three D's!' said Twycross. '"Destination, Determination, Deliberation"!'"

  11. What does Voldemort steal from Hepzibah Smith?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Slytherin's locket and Hufflepuff's Cup

    "'It took them a while to be sure of this, for she had many hiding places, having always guarded her collection most jealously. But before they were sure beyond doubt that the cup and the locket were both gone, the assistant who had worked at Borgin and Burkes, the young man who had visited Hepzibah so regularly and charmed her so well, had resigned his post and vanished.'"

  12. Besides Sectumsempra, what is the other jinx Harry learns from the Half-Blood Prince's book?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Levicorpus

    "Harry threw himself sideways, thought Levicorpus! and flicked his wand, but Malfoy blocked the jinx and raised his wand for another."

  13. What was Professor Trelawney trying to hide in the Room of Requirement?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Sherry bottles

    "...Professor Trelawney sprawled upon the floor, her head covered in one of her many shawls, several sherry bottles lying beside her, one broken... 'Professor, were you trying to get into the Room of Requirement?' 'I wished to — ah — deposit certain — um — personal items in the room...'"

  14. Why did Voldemort choose this particular cave to hide the locket Horcrux in?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    He visited the cave as a child

    "'No, I think it was only ever Tom Riddle and his youthful victims who visited this spot. No Muggle could reach this rock unless they were uncommonly good mountaineers, and boats cannot approach the cliffs, the waters around them are too dangerous. I imagine that Riddle climbed down; magic would have served better than ropes. And he brought two small children with him, probably for the pleasure of terrorizing them.'"

  15. After the cave, Dumbledore and Harry apparate to Hogsmeade, who finds them there?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Madam Rosmerta

    "Looking around he saw Madam Rosmerta scurrying down the dark street toward them on high-heeled, fluffy slippers, wearing a silk dressing gown embroidered with dragons."

  16. And finally, which Death Eater is NOT at Hogwarts the night Dumbledore is killed?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    Bellatrix Lestrange

    "'Good evening, Amycus,' said Dumbledore calmly, as though welcoming the man to a tea party. 'And you've brought Alecto too...Charming.' ... 'Is that you, Fenrir?' asked Dumbledore. 'That's right,' rasped the other. 'Please to see me, Dumbledore?'"
