Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Ender hoped that after his monitor was gone, he and Peter would be what?

Ender speaks of his desire to be brothers with Peter. Of course, technically they are brothers, but they don't act like it. Ender associated "brothers" as being able to live in the same house- no more fighting.
2. What instrument did Peter play?

Ender also speaks of the way Peter usually acts with him. Ender said that Peter would be playing the piano and ask Ender to come turn the pages for him. Then Peter would get paranoid and begin to insult Ender for not doing what he asked.
3. What was the nurse's name who took care of Ender's monitor?

The doctor is removing Ender's monitor when he (Ender) goes into a state of shock and begins to spasm. The doctor then shouts "Deedee! I need you!" Deedee the nurse comes running back in to help.
4. Ender's teacher's name was Miss Pumphrey.

After Ender's monitor was removed, he arrived back to Miss Pumphrey's class with 15 minutes left till the closing bell.
5. How many times could Ender say he could draw a spiral around his desktop without overlapping or touching the sides?

Ender comments about how grown-ups must have large stubby fingers and hypothesizes that they can't hardly draw a good spiral on their desk. Then he boasts to himself about how he can draw one with 79 lines and not even touch the sides or overlap them.
6. How old was Valentine when she taught Ender arithmetic?

Ender speaks of how boring arithmetic is and claims that Valentine taught him arithmetic when he was three. Seeing as he is six when he goes off to Battle School and Valentine is one year older, she was four when teaching him arithmetic.
7. What part of Stilson's body did Ender make contact with when he struck him?

Ender kicked Stilson square in his breastbone and he fell to the ground. Ender is a One-Hit-Wonder! Ender then realized that Stilson was a bully with talk and didn't take fighting seriously. Ender also realized that unless he finished this now, Stilson's gang would most likely come after him later, so Ender beat up Stilson while he was laying on the ground.

He completely tore him apart and warned Stilson's gang to not come near him again. Believe me...even if Ender hadn't left that day, I'm sure that nobody would have ever bothered him again! Go Ender!
8. When the reader first meets Peter, after Ender first gets home from school, what is he (Peter) snacking on with bread?

Ender gets home from school and walks into the house. Valentine notices him and comments on how his monitor is gone just when Peter walks in eating peanut butter and bread. Of course, Peter then comments on how Ender was rejected too and laughs that he is now just a third.
9. Ender said that the Buggers probably called humans "Slimies" because our skin is so soft and oily.

Ender talks with himself about if the buggers feel trapped in a mask. But he then figures that if it's their own skin, then they are oblivious to it. He then wonders if buggers put on human masks and play war games too. What would they call us? "Slimies" because we're so soft and oily compared to them.
10. Valentine wrote a secret letter claiming that if she suddenly died with no reason or rhyme, that Peter killed her and will most likely be coming for Andrew (Ender) too. She says she stored this letter where?

Peter claims that one day, he's going to kill her and Ender, and Valentine contradicts him by saying that he won't because he wants to get elected for an office in the government and that she's written a letter as testimony that will only be opened once she's dead. It says that Peter killed her and if you are said to do something like that you can't be elected for an office.
11. Peter and Ender were playing "Buggers and Astronauts" and after the game, Ender shows that he has blood on his toe. Ender says that it's not his own. Peter answers him by saying what?

Answer: Oh, look! Ender squashed a little cappertiller!

Peter will never openly admit that Ender is any smarter or stronger than he is. Peter just insults him about the blood and pretends to not be worried.
12. What signaled Ender's family that somebody was at the front door during breakfast the next morning?

I take a direct quote: "The table beeped. Someone was at the door. 'Who is it?' Mother asked. Father thumbed a key and a man appeared on his video. He was wearing the only military uniform that meant anything anymore, the I.F., the International Fleet."
13. When Ender's mother is nervous, what does she play with?

I shall take another quote: "Ender followed father into the parlor. The I.F. officer rose to his feet when they entered, but he did not extend a hand to Ender. Mother was twisting her wedding band on her finger. 'Andrew', she said, 'I never thought you were the kind to get in a fight.'"
14. What is Colonel Graff's first name?
