Morgan has read the Harry Potter series a countless number of times and loves creating tough trivia questions.

Harry Potter is one of the greatest fantasy series ever, and it all kicked off with Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Whether you’ve read it once or 50 times, it seems there are always more bits to notice. But there might come a point when you’ll have read it so much that you think you know the answer to any question someone could ask you.

Here are 15 questions to test your Harry Potter knowledge on names, places, and events that occur in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Don’t fool yourself into thinking that you’ll be asked something as easy as the spell to make objects fly; think more along the lines of the age of Nicolas Flamel’s wife.
