Question 1 of 10
1. When Harry visits Diagon Alley for the first time, one of his first stops is Gringotts Wizarding Bank. Hagrid tells Harry that "yeh'd be mad ter try an' rob it," but that's just what Harry, Ron and Hermione do six books later. What object were they trying to pilfer from the Lestranges' high-security vault? Hint


Question 2 of 10
2. In several books we are given clues that Harry and Lord Voldemort are connected more closely than most enemies. The first clue comes when Harry is purchasing school supplies with Hagrid the day after his eleventh birthday. What does Harry buy, which is the first indication of his mysterious link with the Dark Lord? Hint


Question 3 of 10
3. In "Chamber of Secrets" Harry arrives accidentally in Knockturn Alley, on the premises of Borgin and Burkes. Harry ducks into a cabinet to hide from the Malfoys when they enter. As Harry watches, Draco inspects a withered hand, a hangman's noose and a cursed opal necklace. All of these items have significance in "Half-Blood Prince" except which? Hint


Question 4 of 10
4. In Harry's first Potions class with Professor Snape, Harry gets in trouble when he doesn't know where to find a bezoar. A bezoar, as it turns out, is a cure for most poisons and can be found in the stomach of a goat. Later, in "Half-Blood Prince", a bezoar is employed as a remedy when one of the characters is poisoned and nearly dies. Who? Hint


Question 5 of 10
5. When Ron and Harry arrive at Hogwarts to start their second year, they crash Mr. Weasley's car into an "old and valuable tree". On whose account was the Whomping Willow planted on the school grounds many years before? Hint


Question 6 of 10
6. A second mysterious link between Harry and Lord Voldemort is revealed in "Chamber of Secrets" and causes many of the Hogwarts students to believe that Harry is the Heir of Slytherin. What ability does Harry have, which is shared by both the Hogwarts founder and the Dark Lord? Hint


Question 7 of 10
7. Harry's defeat of Slytherin's Basilisk (and Tom Riddle) has far more significance than just the climactic "closing" of the Chamber of Secrets and the rescue of Ginny Weasley. Riddle's diary becomes the first of four Horcruxes to be destroyed by the power of Basilisk venom. Which of the following Horcruxes was NOT finally destroyed either by a Basilisk fang, or by the sword of Gryffindor, which had been imbued with the creature's venom? Hint


Question 8 of 10
8. One of the characters first introduced in "The Prisoner of Azkaban" is the Divination teacher, Professor Sybill Trelawney. Ron and Harry think that the classes are a bit of a joke; however, partway through the book Harry hears Professor Trelawney prophesy the return of Lord Voldemort, and at the end Professor Dumbledore tells Harry that this "brings her total of real predictions up to two". Is it true or false that Professor Trelawney's first real prediction also concerned the Dark Lord?


Question 9 of 10
9. The reader first hears of Polyjuice Potion in "Chamber of Secrets" when Harry and Ron use it to discover if Draco Malfoy knows anything about the Heir of Slytherin and the attacks that have been happening at Hogwarts. In "Goblet of Fire" one of Voldemort's Death Eaters uses Polyjuice Potion to disguise himself as a Hogwarts professor. Whose identity did the imposter assume? Hint


Question 10 of 10
10. In "Chamber of Secrets" Harry befriends a house-elf named Dobby and frees him from servitude to the Malfoy family. Dobby resurfaces in several other books, always as loyal and true a friend as a young wizard could hope for. In "Deathly Hallows" Dobby gives his life to free good people from captivity at Malfoy Manor. Who out of the following characters was among those saved? Hint

Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. When Harry visits Diagon Alley for the first time, one of his first stops is Gringotts Wizarding Bank. Hagrid tells Harry that "yeh'd be mad ter try an' rob it," but that's just what Harry, Ron and Hermione do six books later. What object were they trying to pilfer from the Lestranges' high-security vault?

Answer: Hufflepuff's cup

Voldemort thought that having a vault at Gringotts was a mark of prestige, so he had Bellatrix hide one of his Horcruxes inside the bank. From this chapter in "Philosopher's Stone" Harry also learns two vital pieces of information that will later help him steal the Horcrux: that a dragon is thought to guard the high security vaults, and that it would be foolish to try to break into a vault without a goblin accomplice.

At the time of the break-in, Harry was already in possession of the sword of Gryffindor. A fake one had been hidden in the Lestranges' vault.
2. In several books we are given clues that Harry and Lord Voldemort are connected more closely than most enemies. The first clue comes when Harry is purchasing school supplies with Hagrid the day after his eleventh birthday. What does Harry buy, which is the first indication of his mysterious link with the Dark Lord?

Answer: A wand

In "Philosopher's Stone" it is revealed early on that Harry's and Lord Voldemort's wands have cores which came from the tail feathers of the same phoenix. In "Goblet of Fire" we find out that Dumbledore's pet, Fawkes, was the donor.

Harry first encountered Draco Malfoy while buying his new robes at Madam Malkin's; it was unpleasant, but had nothing to do with Voldemort. Hedwig was given as a gift to Harry from Hagrid, and Harry never purchases a solid gold cauldron (although he considers it).
3. In "Chamber of Secrets" Harry arrives accidentally in Knockturn Alley, on the premises of Borgin and Burkes. Harry ducks into a cabinet to hide from the Malfoys when they enter. As Harry watches, Draco inspects a withered hand, a hangman's noose and a cursed opal necklace. All of these items have significance in "Half-Blood Prince" except which?

Answer: Hangman's noose

In his sixth year, as a punishment for Lucius Malfoy's having bungled matters at the Ministry of Magic the year before, Draco Malfoy is made a Death Eater in his father's place and is set the improbable task of killing the Hogwarts headmaster. One of Draco's failed attempts involves the cursed necklace.

The vanishing cabinet in Borgin and Burkes was one end of a portal that allowed Voldemort's Death Eaters to enter Hogwarts. As Draco leads them through the school, he darkens the corridors with Peruvian Instant Darkness Powder and uses the withered hand to light his own way through. We learn when Draco asks about it in the shop that it is called a Hand of Glory and when a candle is inserted it provides light only for the person who is holding it.
4. In Harry's first Potions class with Professor Snape, Harry gets in trouble when he doesn't know where to find a bezoar. A bezoar, as it turns out, is a cure for most poisons and can be found in the stomach of a goat. Later, in "Half-Blood Prince", a bezoar is employed as a remedy when one of the characters is poisoned and nearly dies. Who?

Answer: Ron Weasley

This was another failed attempt of Draco's to kill Professor Dumbledore, by poisoning a bottle of mead which Professor Slughorn intended to give the headmaster as a Christmas gift. The mead, however, fails to make its way to its intended victim, and it was lucky for Ron there was a bezoar among Professor Slughorn's potion supplies and that Harry had the perspicacity to look for it.
5. When Ron and Harry arrive at Hogwarts to start their second year, they crash Mr. Weasley's car into an "old and valuable tree". On whose account was the Whomping Willow planted on the school grounds many years before?

Answer: Remus Lupin

We learn near the end of "Prisoner of Azkaban" (or near the beginning, if the reader is familiar with Roman mythology and Latin) that Professor Lupin is a werewolf. This, however, does not stop Headmaster Dumbledore from offering young Remus a place at the school, but at each full moon Remus must be taken to a safe location where he won't harm his schoolmates.

The Whomping Willow was planted over the entrance to a secret tunnel out of the school to make sure that students didn't come across him accidentally while he was transformed and dangerous.
6. A second mysterious link between Harry and Lord Voldemort is revealed in "Chamber of Secrets" and causes many of the Hogwarts students to believe that Harry is the Heir of Slytherin. What ability does Harry have, which is shared by both the Hogwarts founder and the Dark Lord?

Answer: He can talk to snakes

Harry actually talks to a snake for the first time in "Philosopher's Stone", but the reader isn't aware until "Chamber of Secrets" that it is an ability he shares with Lord Voldemort. It turns out that Voldemort is Slytherin's heir and Harry, who has been imbued with part of Voldemort's soul, has likewise inherited the ability to communicate with snakes.

In Harry's world, snake language is called Parseltongue and those who can speak it are called Parselmouths. The ability is closely associated with Dark Magic.
7. Harry's defeat of Slytherin's Basilisk (and Tom Riddle) has far more significance than just the climactic "closing" of the Chamber of Secrets and the rescue of Ginny Weasley. Riddle's diary becomes the first of four Horcruxes to be destroyed by the power of Basilisk venom. Which of the following Horcruxes was NOT finally destroyed either by a Basilisk fang, or by the sword of Gryffindor, which had been imbued with the creature's venom?

Answer: Ravenclaw's diadem

Riddle's diary and Hufflepuff's cup were both destroyed by being stabbed with a Basilisk fang. Ron destroys the locket after rescuing Harry and the sword from a pond in the Forest of Dean, and while the reader isn't present when Gaunt's ring is destroyed, it is revealed by (the portrait of) Phineas Nigellus that Dumbledore used the sword to destroy it the summer before Harry's sixth year at Hogwarts. Ravenclaw's diadem is destroyed by the Fiendfyre cast by Vincent Crabbe in the Room of Requirement.

Nagini was also killed with Gryffindor's sword but, as a mortal being, probably could have been destroyed without Basilisk venom. Depending on your interpretation of how Voldemort's snake might have been affected by becoming a Horcrux, Nagini could be counted as a fifth Horcrux destroyed specifically by the venom.
8. One of the characters first introduced in "The Prisoner of Azkaban" is the Divination teacher, Professor Sybill Trelawney. Ron and Harry think that the classes are a bit of a joke; however, partway through the book Harry hears Professor Trelawney prophesy the return of Lord Voldemort, and at the end Professor Dumbledore tells Harry that this "brings her total of real predictions up to two". Is it true or false that Professor Trelawney's first real prediction also concerned the Dark Lord?

Answer: True

Professor Trelawney's prediction is revealed in "Order of the Phoenix". It begins: "the one with the power to vanquish the Dark Lord approaches... born to those who have thrice defied him, born as the seventh month dies..." Voldemort assumed this meant one-year-old Harry Potter, and it was the reason that he attacked the Potters' home in Godric's Hollow.

In several of Harry's Divination classes Professor Trelawney's predictions appear to have validity--Neville's breaking a favoured pink teacup, for example--but based on Dumbledore's count of her real prophecies and Rowling's tendency to portray Trelawney as a fatuous bumbler, the reader is led to believe that these were perhaps nothing more supernatural than lucky guesses.

Like Professor Lupin, Professor Trelawney's name is also appropriate to her circumstance. In Greek the word "sibylla" means "prophetess".
9. The reader first hears of Polyjuice Potion in "Chamber of Secrets" when Harry and Ron use it to discover if Draco Malfoy knows anything about the Heir of Slytherin and the attacks that have been happening at Hogwarts. In "Goblet of Fire" one of Voldemort's Death Eaters uses Polyjuice Potion to disguise himself as a Hogwarts professor. Whose identity did the imposter assume?

Answer: Professor Moody

Earlier in the book Arthur Weasley was asked to investigate a disturbance at Alastor Moody's residence that was likely a false alarm. We can only assume that this was when Barty Crouch, Jr. locked the ex-Auror in the magical trunk and assumed his form using Polyjuice Potion.

Polyjuice Potion also features extensively in the last book, "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows". On their quest to destroy Voldemort's Horcruxes, Harry, Ron and Hermione use Polyjuice Potion to infiltrate the Ministry of Magic and steal Slytherin's locket from Dolores Umbridge. After escaping from Malfoy Manor, Hermione again uses Polyjuice Potion to assume the form of Bellatrix Lestrange to access the Lestranges' vault at Gringotts.
10. In "Chamber of Secrets" Harry befriends a house-elf named Dobby and frees him from servitude to the Malfoy family. Dobby resurfaces in several other books, always as loyal and true a friend as a young wizard could hope for. In "Deathly Hallows" Dobby gives his life to free good people from captivity at Malfoy Manor. Who out of the following characters was among those saved?

Answer: Garrick Ollivander

Voldemort had kidnapped the wandmaker hoping that Ollivander could explain why Harry's wand and his own had behaved so strangely when they duelled near the end of "Goblet of Fire". Ollivander was later tortured into revealing that another wandmaker, Gregorovitch, was rumoured to possess the legendary Elder Wand.

Florean Fortescue was kidnapped around the same time as Ollivander, but it appears that he had already been killed before Harry, Ron and Hermione were taken by the Snatchers; in any case, he wasn't with the others at Malfoy Manor. Rowling had originally intended for Fortescue's disappearance to be related to Voldemort's search for the Elder Wand, but the idea fizzled and didn't make it into the published works. Fortescue became just another kind wizard who was senselessly killed by Voldemort in his quest for power and domination.
