The answer to #9 reminds me of a book given to me by my godmother in 1963, The Book of Answers. Does anyone remember that book? All searches for that book, over the last 40 years, have been futile.

Very vaguely. When I see these quizzes I am often reminded of the Victorian work referred to in several Agatha Christie mysteries, "Inquire Within About Anything". It always sounded real, but I don't know if it was.
