Your quiz is wrong. The year you are thinking of for last to first was 1991 for Twins and Braves. In 1987 the Twins beat the Cardinals. Look it up. Your quiz is dead wrong.

Question #14 is incorrect. In 1987 the Twins beat the Cardinals. The correct year for your question is 1991

The quiz answer for question 14 is incorrect. The Twins beat the Cardinals not the Braves which makes question 15 irrelevant.
