Fairly sure the answer to 100 is wrong, I thought it was roughly 210 so did a quick search and found this "So by Aragorn living 210 years, he was given a lifespan of a king who lived at a time when the Dúnedain were still strong." from theonering.net . Still, pretty good quiz, I am kicking myself about so many of the answers!

#3 This is ambiguous. Gandalf was a Maia in Valinor, but in Middle Earth he was known as a wizard.
#40 While Balin was often and presumably the best lookout the answer is not correct. In the Hobbit, chapter Spiders and Flies, ("Dori is the strongest, but Fili is the youngest and still has the best sight," said Thorin.
#70 This is not totally clear, but if you go to beginning of he chapter Minas Tirith where tGandalf says, "The beacons of Gondor are alight, calling for aid." and compare this to Appendix B 8-10, while not conclusive, it would appear that the beacons were lit prior to the arrival of the red arrow.
# poorly constructed question/answer : without the aid of The Oathbreakers, the Dunedain would never have arrived.

p.s.your quiz unfortunately showed me one more time that I need to slow down and read the questions completely. Nice to see purely books.
