It wasn’t Pippin who got married it was Sam. Number 11 is therefore incorrect. Also number seven had multiple correct answers, as there is nothing to suggest that either Dwarves, Ents, or Hobbits were in Eru’s original plans, although it is conceivable that all of them were. (Eru told Aule upon the latter’s creation of the Dwarves that their creation had been in his own heart as well, but that it was the timing and manner that was off.)
