True "Harry Potter" Fans Can Pass This Auror Exam

Honestly, I like "wizard police" more than "auror," but I didn't write the books.

  1. What is the incantation for the Unlocking Charm?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Alohomora!

  2. Against which creature is the spell Riddikulus most effective?

    Getty Images
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's effective against boggarts!

    While the spell itself can't get rid of or hurt a boggart, it reduces a boggart's food source: fear.

  3. Which of these is NOT an Unforgivable Curse?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's the Expulso Curse!

    While this curse is dangerous, it's not considered Unforgivable.

  4. What works as an antidote to most poisons?

    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's bezoars!

  5. Which of these is a charm?

    Getty Images
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Confundo!

    The other spells are transfigurations.

  6. Which of the following does not belong?

    Getty Images
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's asphodel!

    Monkshood, wolfsbane, and aconite are all different names for the same plant, which is used in certain potions.

  7. Which of these spells does NOT make an object float or fly?

    Getty Images
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    It's Colloportus!

    That's a locking charm, not a levitation spell!

  8. What cannot be created from thin air?

    Getty Images
    Correct! 
    Wrong! 

    You can't conjure "good food."

    As one of the five Principal Exceptions to Gamp’s Law of Elemental Transfiguration, food can be summoned, enlarged, and duplicated, but you cannot conjure anything with real nutritional value (maybe just a sauce or some wine).
