Not only do you know your subjects from your objects and your definite from your indefinite articles, but you've got quite a handle on the literature and the history of the language as well. Huzzah, and well done! The English snobs of Boston salute you.

My favorite wrong answer was that the French equivalent of "Beowulf" was "La croissant de ma tante." I'm assuming that's just funny and not a real title; I'm not as good with French Lit as I apparently am with English.

There is some long-running French joke about La plume de ma tante (My aunt's writing pen) that I've never quite grasped. I think this must have been a take-off on that.

I'd like to see a list of the "right" answers. The first question about the square root of 9, for instance. ;p

And the one about Chaucer that has three and a half correct answers... I assume they gave partial credit for some answers. Other choices were indeed and obviously absurd.
