First off, a lot of these were worded badly, and second, Lily only has one l. but other than that, great quiz! (50/50)

49/50! Woohoo! As much as I enjoyed it, there were a fair few grammatical mistakes. But great quiz overall!

I enjoyed this quiz, but some of the facts were slightly off and there is a repeated question.

Dear Creator,
some of these comments are extremely wrong...... but so are some of your facts. Lockhart's specialty is, yes, memory charms, but the actual word is Obliviate. It might be different though for you if you're from another country than me. And in one of the first questions, you said 'What did the Dudleys'. It's Dursley's, not Dudley's.

Some people are saying that the creator's got her/his facts all wrong. Well, actually there's only 7 books in the Harry Potter series. The Cursed Child was, one, a spinoff of Harry Potter to share with fans, two, it wasn't called Harry Potter and the..., and Harry's son Albus was the main character, not Harry. Yes, the creator has a few grammar miscounts, but that happens to everyone (although it's not hard to see that it says 'we' instead of 'he'. And in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince when Dumbledore and Harry go to convince Professor Slughorn to be the Potions master, he was Transfigured into a pink and white striped armchair, not a blue one. Most of these were directed toward the people making these comments. And to Esa1, The Cursed Child was not made by a fan, but by J.K. Rowling. Even though J.K. wrote the book that included Harry Potter, it isn't a part of the series because it doesn't have the 'Harry Potter and the..', and Harry wasn't the main character, it was his son, Albus.

Dear Creator,

I have read all of the books seven times, and I watch the movies every time I get the chance to. I did not get a perfect score, which I find surprising. I would not be concerned considering this is just an online test and determines no such thing, but quite a few of these questions are incorrect. I will not name them for the time being, but I have one recommendation for the creator of this quiz.

Before you make a quiz determining your knowledge on Harry Potter, make sure you have read all of the books and that you comprehend them correctly. Also, work on your spelling and your grammar. All in all, educate yourself before you try to educate others.
Thank you.

Luna Lovegood.
