Sorry, I originally used a script from a quiz site to display this quiz, you selected your answer, then got your score when you finished. It was nice, but it expired. I don’t want to use another script that will expire, nor do I want to leave you staring at an empty page, so here (below) is a copy of all the quiz questions and options with the answers at the bottom of the page.
I mainly used Wikipedia for reference. If you want to grab the quiz you can, but I suggest you double-check the answers for your own peace of mind.
