Stories with this maturity level will not, by design, have any potentially objectionable content. An example of a type story with this rating would be a quiz on mathematics.

After publishing my Fellowship of the Ring quiz, I realized I had not devised a Hobbit quiz. This one is both shorter and simpler than that quiz, for two reasons:

1.) The Hobbit is a shorter and simpler novel than The Fellowship of the Ring.

2.) This counts toward my Lore-masters standings, so I would not want to throw off the mechanics of that scoring system with a quiz as long as that one over a smaller subject matter. This is NOT to say that my The Two Towers quiz will also be this brief; in fact, I believe it will be longer.

Anyhow, this quiz is about J.R.R. Tolkien's novel, NOT the 1977 cartoon, NOT the Sierra Entertainment multi-platform game, NOT the adaptation by Charles Dixon and Sean Deming, and NOT any other derivative work!!!! IF YOU HAVE NOT READ THE HOBBIT, DO NOT TAKE THIS QUIZ, YOU WILL NOT SCORE WELL!!!!! You have been warned!

Well, I believe I've said all that is necessary! Good luck, reader!!

This is arguably one of the best "test your knowledge" quizzes I've taken on here, partly because your spelling and capitalization is much better. I commend you on the questions as well. They weren't ridiculously hard, but they are tricky enough to give a casual reader pause, and I'm honestly not sure as I write this whether or not I passed. I also like the option of answering a bonus question.

I'd like to point out that multiple exclamation points and random capitalization, such as on the "Thank you for taking the quiz" page or the "Alright. Here's your BONUS QUESTION!!!!!!!" page, feels a tad obnoxious to most people and you could create emphasis without them. (Bold, italics, underlining, all three, different colored text, exc.)

However, emphasis needs to be used in moderation or it loses its impact. Your description seems to suffer from a similar problem, with the addition of too much "bold" text.

I also feel this quiz could've been a bit longer than eleven questions because it seems short. I'm not sure every reader agrees with me on "twenty or more" for trivia, but fifteen is a solid number.

Over all, I still really enjoyed it, so thank you for the nostalgia.

I have read The Hobbit and I still had a bit of problems with is but that's mainly because I don't pay attention to deatails very well.
