Harry Potter quiz 2016
* 1. These are the two lines that began it all.
Identify the narrator, an extremely famous British
actor, who has narrated all seven of the Harry Potter
audio-books.
He is also the voice behind the Cheshire Cat in the Alice
in Wonderland movie and the Guide in The Hitchhiker’s
Guide to the Galaxy
2. This extremely dry and
barren area (see yellow
coloured area in the map) is
the seventh largest of its
kind and was home to an
event of great significance
in recent times.
What?
3. If O.W.L. stands for ‘Ordinary Wizarding Level’ and
W.O.M.B.A.T. stands for ‘Wizards’ Ordinary Magic and Basic
Aptitude Test’, then what does N.E.W.T. stand for?
4. X started off as a beater for a prominent Quidditch team and went on
to play for the English national team as well. His Quidditch fame helped
him escape Azkaban when he had to stand trial for passing on
information to Death Eaters. Eventually, he joined the Ministry of Magic,
rising up to become the Head of the Department of Magical Games &
Sports, and was actively involved in the 1994 Quidditch World Cup and
Triwizard Tournament.
X was however, also a notorious gambler and had to go on the run after
dealing in Y, a very ‘unethical’ form of wizarding currency.
Id X and Y
*5. Kentigern was a Scottish missionary, who is considered by most
people to be the founder of the city of Glas Ghu, which eventually
became Scotland’s present-day capital, Glasgow. He is known for his
preachings and sermons despite strong anti-Christian sentiments in his
time, and is believed to protect people who are bullied or who have
been accused of infidelity.
Scots and Potterheads however know Kentigern by his more famous
nickname. What nickname?
6. Before Albus Dumbledore became a Headmaster, he was a
professor at Hogwarts.
What subject did he teach?
7. ‘Hatstall’ refers to a Hogwarts student whose sorting took more than
5 minutes, because the Sorting Hat found them to have a personality
equally suited to two or more houses.
There have been several almost-hatstalls, such as Hermione
(Gryffindor and Ravenclaw), Gilderoy Lockhart (Slytherin and
Ravenclaw), Neville (Hufflepuff and Gryffindor) and Harry himself
(Gryffindor and Slytherin).
However, as of today, only two persons have been known to be pure
hatstalls. One was Peter Pettigrew.
Who was the other, in whose case, the Sorting Hat became confused
between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw, just like for Hermione?
8. One of the earliest parodies of Harry Potter was Michael Gerber’s Barry Trotter
series, modeled on ‘Bored of the Rings’, a Lord of the Rings parody.
Gerber started writing the books after getting annoyed with the Warner Bros’
excessive control and over-commercialization of the Harry Potter brand.
The main villain in the series is a parody of Lord Voldemort, and the character’s
name, quite appropriately, parodies the name of one of the most famous American
organizations in the world. Interestingly, the organization’s name is a bit similar to
‘Voldemort’.
Which organization?

11. This 800 word short story (a portion of it has been shown on
the next slide) tells about an adventure undertaken by James
Potter and Sirius Black from the point of view of two muggle
cops.
Written by JK Rowling as part of ‘What’s your story?’, a charity
auction event where 13 authors were invited to write stories on
A5 cards, the story was published online in 2011.
What is so special about this story (something which Rowling
humorously referred to in the post-script : “From the ______
I am not working on – but that was fun!) ?
Harry Potter quiz 2016
12. Where exactly is this short but excellent poem found?
Enter, stranger, but take heed
Of what awaits the sin of greed
For those who take, but do not earn,
Must pay most dearly in their turn.
So if you seek beneath our floors
A treasure that was never yours,
Thief, you have been warned, beware
Of finding more than treasure there.
13. This English word, whose meaning is given below, actually comes
from Latin, where it meant ‘left’. However, petty superstitions and
beliefs that the left side was associated with the devil ultimately resulted
in its present meaning.
A modified version of this word gives the name of the Astronomy
Professor at Hogwarts.
Either give the word or name the professor.
14. Jelly Belly is an American candy and confectionary
manufacturing company, widely known in India as well.
What beloved magical food product (which can sometimes taste
like blackberry and chocolate while sometimes like vomit and troll
bogey) does Jelly Belly have the official license to manufacture?
Harry Potter quiz 2016
* 15. This clip shows one of the most famous scenes from
Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The Three Witches fortell Macbeth’s
fate, which ultimately leads to the rise and eventual fall of this
iconic character.
The Three Witches were collectively also known by another
famous name, which can be safely declared to be one of the
most misleading names in the Harry Potter series.
What name?
16. What book, which is also a standard textbook at
Hogwarts, completes this list of works by famous author,
Kennilworthy Whisp –
• The Wonder of Wigtown Wanderers
• He Flew Like a Madman (a biography of “Dangerous”

in Quidditch
• ______
17. This character, known for her love of gossip and divination among
other things, is someone who is probably hated by most shippers and
romantic fan-fiction writers.
However, nobody is really sure whether this character is dead or alive,
something which has generated immense controversy among fans. At
one point during the Battle of Hogwarts, she was attacked by Fenrir
Greyback. Hermione manages to save her from him, but the character’s
fate after that remains unknown. The books haven’t mentioned her status
clearly and JK Rowling hasn’t officially commented on the issue,
although the movie adaptations strongly hint that she is dead, with even
her official Pottermore page declaring her as ‘presumed dead’.
Who?
18. Probably one of the most famous omens that
magical folk believe in, is that of a giant spectral
black dog that haunts churchyards and is reputed
to bring death to the person who encounters it.
Ron’s uncle, Bilius, was rumored to have died
after seeing it. Harry supposedly witnesses the
omen in his teacup during divination class and
even during a Quidditch match, and Professor
Trelawney predicts very bad times for him.
However, like most of her prophecies, it doesn’t
come true, and the omens that Harry thinks he is
seeing turns out to be Sirius’ animagus form.
What is this omen known as?
19. What place, very popular among wizards, and which also serves as the entrance
to Diagon Alley, is this?
The place shares its name with one of the most famous Harry Potter fan-sites ever,
which has been praised by Rowling herself.
20. A counter-jinx (or counter-spell) is a special type of spell whose
purpose is to inhibit, remove or negate the effects of another specific
spell.
There are many famous spell-counter spell pairs such as Lumos -
Nox, Levicorpus - Liberacorpus, and Alohomora – Colloportus.
‘Rennervate’ (later changed to ‘Ennervate’) is a counter to a very
popular spell used in duelling. Next to ‘Expelliarmus’ it was probably
one of the most frequently used spells by Harry and the Dumbledore’s
Army.
What spell?
* 21. A leitmotif (sometimes, also called a theme) is a
recurring piece of music used in movies and associated with a
certain character, place, object or idea. Leitmotifs have been
dedicated to famous characters like Indiana Jones, the Joker
and Don Vito Corleone
Which character is this haunting leitmotif from the Harry
Potter movies dedicated to?
Answers
* 1. These are the two lines that began it all.

Sports, and was actively involved in the 1994 Quidditch World Cup and
Triwizard Tournament.

1. The Flame-Freezing charm is a spell that changes the
effects of a fire, so that instead of a burning sensation, it
would feel like a warm breeze and the subject would assume
that he is being gently tickled.

to which she has been featured both on chocolate frog cards
and Bathilda Bagshot’s History of Magic.

3. Which character is JK Rowling talking about, in this famous article
that came out on Pottermore?
“… For all this, ______ remains a person of dubious morality in the
seven published books, and I have often had cause to remark on how
unnerved I have been by the number of girls who fell for this particular
fictional character (although I do not discount the appeal of X, who
plays ______ brilliantly in the films and, ironically, is about the nicest
person you could meet). ______ has all the dark glamour of the anti-
hero; girls are very apt to romanticise such people. All of this left me in
the unenviable position of pouring cold common sense on ardent
readers’ daydreams as I told them, rather severely, that ______ was not
concealing a heart of gold under all that sneering and prejudice
Harry Potter quiz 2016
Draco Malfoy
4. X is a character from Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park,

8. This Hogwarts musical group was presumably founded
during Celestina Warbeck’s time at the school, and gives an
indication of the school’s strong link with animals.
However, JK Rowling was not the person who originally
introduced this idea, which is absent from the Harry Potter
books. Instead, it was proposed by Alfonso Cuaron, while
directing Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban, and
Rowling immediately fell in love with the idea. It was so
popular that not only did it make an appearance in the third
movie, but it also did in the fifth.

problem.
How exactly is this headache caused?

1. The expression ‘dog days’ refers to the hot, sultry days
of summer, originally in areas around the Mediterranean Sea,
and eventually to other areas, especially in the Northern
Hemisphere.
The coincidence of very warm temperatures in the early
civilizations in North Africa and the Near East with the rising, at
sunrise , of a certain astronomical body, led to the association
of this phrase with these conditions.
What astronomical body?
2. In Greek myth, Echo was an Oread (a type
of Nymph) who resided on Mount Cithaeron.
She and other nymphs were often visited by
Zeus during his trips to Earth. However, after
Hera grew suspicious about what Zeus was
doing, and tried to catch him in his act, Echo
rose to defend Zeus. A wrathful Hera cursed
her to be only able to speak the last few
words spoken to her.
As a result, when she met and fell in love
with X, a legendary mythical character (who
also has associations with modern
psychology), she was unable to tell him and
ultimately died of a broken heart.

3. FITB –
The ______ Strain by Michael Crichton, author of The Jurassic Park, is a techno-thriller novel
documenting the efforts of a team of scientists investigating the outbreak of a
deadly extraterrestrial microorganism, code-named ______. The novel established Michael
Crichton as a popular writer, and was his first novel to top the New York Times list. In 2008,
Ridley Scott and his brother directed a critically acclaimed mini-series of the same name, loosely
based on the novel.
______ can be considered to be one of the earliest examples of ‘Damsel in Distress’, complete
with being chained to a rock and threatened by a scary monster.
4. FITB –
Marcus Atilius ______ refers to a trio of grandfather, son and grandson, who were
famous Roman consuls .
The son proved to be the most famous of the three. He was captured at Tunis in 255 BC,
after a battle. After he was released on parole to negotiate a peace, he is supposed to have
urged the Roman Senate to refuse the proposals and then, over the protests of his own
people, to have fulfilled the terms of his parole by returning to Carthage, where,
according to Roman tradition, he was tortured to death.
5. The ‘Zam zammah’ (from Rudyard Kipling’s Kim), the Jai
Vaan (which gave its name to the Jaigarh fort) and the Big

of military equipment, first used by the Moors during the Seige
of Cordoba, and made famous by Napoleon.
Name of the equipment?
6. The River Piddle is a small rural river in the Dorset region of
England. Several villages through which the river passes
through are named after it. However, the Victorians changed the
name to something very similar (which we know today as
something formed on the ground after rain) due to 'piddle' being
an alternative word for 'piss‘.
What was the alternative name?
7. In Greek mythology and Roman mythology, this creature was
a female monster in the form of a bird with a human face. They
supposedly stole food from their victims while they were eating
and carried evildoers (especially those who had killed their
family) to the Erinyes in Hades.
What creature?
8. ‘Yellowjacket’ is the name given to a type of insect. The
insect can be identified by its distinctive markings, itsoccurrence
only in colonies, and a characteristic, rapid, side-to-side flight
pattern prior to landing. All females are capable of stinging.
Despite having drawn the fear and loathing of humans, these
insects are in fact important predators of pest insects.
Yellowjacket is also one of the many avatars of Hank Pym, from
the Marvel Universe.
What insect?

Harry Potter quiz 2016

  • 1. In Fond Memory Of Alan Rickman
  • 2. NIT SILCHAR QUIZ WEEK 2016 Questions by: Amitabh Sharma Harry Potter AND THE QUIZ FOR MUGGLES
  • 4. 21 questions  Questions 1, 5, 10, 15 and 21 are starred and will be used to resolve ties. Put a star next to these question numbers, with your quill on the answer parchments. No negative marking Top 6 teams will qualify for finals
  • 5. Muggle technologies such as mobile phones and internet are not allowed during the quiz
  • 6. However, Remembralls are always allowed!
  • 8. * 1. These are the two lines that began it all. Identify the narrator, an extremely famous British actor, who has narrated all seven of the Harry Potter audio-books. He is also the voice behind the Cheshire Cat in the Alice in Wonderland movie and the Guide in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
  • 9. 2. This extremely dry and barren area (see yellow coloured area in the map) is the seventh largest of its kind and was home to an event of great significance in recent times. What?
  • 10. 3. If O.W.L. stands for ‘Ordinary Wizarding Level’ and W.O.M.B.A.T. stands for ‘Wizards’ Ordinary Magic and Basic Aptitude Test’, then what does N.E.W.T. stand for?
  • 11. 4. X started off as a beater for a prominent Quidditch team and went on to play for the English national team as well. His Quidditch fame helped him escape Azkaban when he had to stand trial for passing on information to Death Eaters. Eventually, he joined the Ministry of Magic, rising up to become the Head of the Department of Magical Games & Sports, and was actively involved in the 1994 Quidditch World Cup and Triwizard Tournament. X was however, also a notorious gambler and had to go on the run after dealing in Y, a very ‘unethical’ form of wizarding currency. Id X and Y
  • 12. *5. Kentigern was a Scottish missionary, who is considered by most people to be the founder of the city of Glas Ghu, which eventually became Scotland’s present-day capital, Glasgow. He is known for his preachings and sermons despite strong anti-Christian sentiments in his time, and is believed to protect people who are bullied or who have been accused of infidelity. Scots and Potterheads however know Kentigern by his more famous nickname. What nickname?
  • 13. 6. Before Albus Dumbledore became a Headmaster, he was a professor at Hogwarts. What subject did he teach?
  • 14. 7. ‘Hatstall’ refers to a Hogwarts student whose sorting took more than 5 minutes, because the Sorting Hat found them to have a personality equally suited to two or more houses. There have been several almost-hatstalls, such as Hermione (Gryffindor and Ravenclaw), Gilderoy Lockhart (Slytherin and Ravenclaw), Neville (Hufflepuff and Gryffindor) and Harry himself (Gryffindor and Slytherin). However, as of today, only two persons have been known to be pure hatstalls. One was Peter Pettigrew. Who was the other, in whose case, the Sorting Hat became confused between Gryffindor and Ravenclaw, just like for Hermione?
  • 15. 8. One of the earliest parodies of Harry Potter was Michael Gerber’s Barry Trotter series, modeled on ‘Bored of the Rings’, a Lord of the Rings parody. Gerber started writing the books after getting annoyed with the Warner Bros’ excessive control and over-commercialization of the Harry Potter brand. The main villain in the series is a parody of Lord Voldemort, and the character’s name, quite appropriately, parodies the name of one of the most famous American organizations in the world. Interestingly, the organization’s name is a bit similar to ‘Voldemort’. Which organization?
  • 17. 9. This clip shows a defensive enchantment in the form of a waterfall, which washes away any kind of enchantments and concealments, including the Imperius Curse and the Polyjuice Potion. What is it called?
  • 18. *10. Following are the gems associated with each of the four Hogwarts houses – • Gryffindor – Ruby • Ravenclaw – Sapphire • Slytherin – Emerald • Hufflepuff – Diamond What crucial feature of the respective houses do these gems indicate?
  • 19. 11. This 800 word short story (a portion of it has been shown on the next slide) tells about an adventure undertaken by James Potter and Sirius Black from the point of view of two muggle cops. Written by JK Rowling as part of ‘What’s your story?’, a charity auction event where 13 authors were invited to write stories on A5 cards, the story was published online in 2011. What is so special about this story (something which Rowling humorously referred to in the post-script : “From the ______ I am not working on – but that was fun!) ?
  • 21. 12. Where exactly is this short but excellent poem found? Enter, stranger, but take heed Of what awaits the sin of greed For those who take, but do not earn, Must pay most dearly in their turn. So if you seek beneath our floors A treasure that was never yours, Thief, you have been warned, beware Of finding more than treasure there.
  • 22. 13. This English word, whose meaning is given below, actually comes from Latin, where it meant ‘left’. However, petty superstitions and beliefs that the left side was associated with the devil ultimately resulted in its present meaning. A modified version of this word gives the name of the Astronomy Professor at Hogwarts. Either give the word or name the professor.
  • 23. 14. Jelly Belly is an American candy and confectionary manufacturing company, widely known in India as well. What beloved magical food product (which can sometimes taste like blackberry and chocolate while sometimes like vomit and troll bogey) does Jelly Belly have the official license to manufacture?
  • 25. * 15. This clip shows one of the most famous scenes from Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The Three Witches fortell Macbeth’s fate, which ultimately leads to the rise and eventual fall of this iconic character. The Three Witches were collectively also known by another famous name, which can be safely declared to be one of the most misleading names in the Harry Potter series. What name?
  • 26. 16. What book, which is also a standard textbook at Hogwarts, completes this list of works by famous author, Kennilworthy Whisp – • The Wonder of Wigtown Wanderers • He Flew Like a Madman (a biography of “Dangerous” Dai Llewellyn) • Beating the Bludgers - A Study of Defensive Strategies in Quidditch • ______
  • 27. 17. This character, known for her love of gossip and divination among other things, is someone who is probably hated by most shippers and romantic fan-fiction writers. However, nobody is really sure whether this character is dead or alive, something which has generated immense controversy among fans. At one point during the Battle of Hogwarts, she was attacked by Fenrir Greyback. Hermione manages to save her from him, but the character’s fate after that remains unknown. The books haven’t mentioned her status clearly and JK Rowling hasn’t officially commented on the issue, although the movie adaptations strongly hint that she is dead, with even her official Pottermore page declaring her as ‘presumed dead’. Who?
  • 28. 18. Probably one of the most famous omens that magical folk believe in, is that of a giant spectral black dog that haunts churchyards and is reputed to bring death to the person who encounters it. Ron’s uncle, Bilius, was rumored to have died after seeing it. Harry supposedly witnesses the omen in his teacup during divination class and even during a Quidditch match, and Professor Trelawney predicts very bad times for him. However, like most of her prophecies, it doesn’t come true, and the omens that Harry thinks he is seeing turns out to be Sirius’ animagus form. What is this omen known as?
  • 29. 19. What place, very popular among wizards, and which also serves as the entrance to Diagon Alley, is this? The place shares its name with one of the most famous Harry Potter fan-sites ever, which has been praised by Rowling herself.
  • 30. 20. A counter-jinx (or counter-spell) is a special type of spell whose purpose is to inhibit, remove or negate the effects of another specific spell. There are many famous spell-counter spell pairs such as Lumos - Nox, Levicorpus - Liberacorpus, and Alohomora – Colloportus. ‘Rennervate’ (later changed to ‘Ennervate’) is a counter to a very popular spell used in duelling. Next to ‘Expelliarmus’ it was probably one of the most frequently used spells by Harry and the Dumbledore’s Army. What spell?
  • 31. * 21. A leitmotif (sometimes, also called a theme) is a recurring piece of music used in movies and associated with a certain character, place, object or idea. Leitmotifs have been dedicated to famous characters like Indiana Jones, the Joker and Don Vito Corleone Which character is this haunting leitmotif from the Harry Potter movies dedicated to?
  • 33. * 1. These are the two lines that began it all. Identify the narrator, an extremely famous British actor, who has narrated all seven of the Harry Potter audio-books. He is also the voice behind the Cheshire Cat in the Alice in Wonderland movie and the Guide in The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy
  • 35. 2. This extremely dry and barren area (see yellow coloured area in the map) is the seventh largest of its kind and was home to an event of great significance in recent times. What?

  • 78. Wands at the ready!
  • 80. 12 direct questions Normal pounce rules apply +10/0 for direct, +5/0 for pass and +20/-10 for pounce
  • 81. 1. The Flame-Freezing charm is a spell that changes the effects of a fire, so that instead of a burning sensation, it would feel like a warm breeze and the subject would assume that he is being gently tickled. It was a favourite spell of the witch, Wendelin the Weird, due to which she has been featured both on chocolate frog cards and Bathilda Bagshot’s History of Magic. What confusion, regarding a set of famous and horrifying incidents known to both magical and muggle historians, does this charm resolve?
  • 83. How most witches survived the hunting and mass burning of witches
  • 84. 2. Hufflepuff is the only Hogwarts house to not require passwords or answers to questions, for entering its common room. However, it has its own arrangement for ensuring that only Hufflepuffs and probably a few more enterprising students are able to enter the common room, with intruders being thoroughly doused in vinegar and barred access. What arrangement?
  • 86. In a stack of barrels concealed in the Hogwarts kitchen, the second one from the bottom has to be tapped in the rhythm of ‘Helga Hufflepuff’
  • 87. 3. Which character is JK Rowling talking about, in this famous article that came out on Pottermore? “… For all this, ______ remains a person of dubious morality in the seven published books, and I have often had cause to remark on how unnerved I have been by the number of girls who fell for this particular fictional character (although I do not discount the appeal of X, who plays ______ brilliantly in the films and, ironically, is about the nicest person you could meet). ______ has all the dark glamour of the anti- hero; girls are very apt to romanticise such people. All of this left me in the unenviable position of pouring cold common sense on ardent readers’ daydreams as I told them, rather severely, that ______ was not concealing a heart of gold under all that sneering and prejudice
  • 90. 4. X is a character from Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park, supposedly based on her sister-in-law. Her dislike of Fanny, the heroine, is famous and she takes every opportunity to take her down. What is her not-so-human connection with Potterheads?
  • 92. The character’s name was Mrs Norris, which is where Rowling derived the name from
  • 93. 5. This is a song called ‘Save Ginny Weasley’ by the band, Harry and the Potters. This genre originated between 2002 and 2004, and is characterized by humorous songs about the Harry Potter universe. Live performances even involve cosplay. What is this genre, now even having a music festival to its credit, called?
  • 96. 6. ‘Gurg’ is the title given to the leader of a tribe. The Gurg has full command over the entire tribe and is served and brought food by other tribe members.
