About This Quiz

When author J.K. Rowling started writing the Harry Potter series back in the 1990s, she had no idea that it would become the best-selling book series in the history of literature. Not only have the books been translated into over 80 languages as of 2018, but also the books have sold over 500 million copies. The last book sold a record 11 million in its first 24 hours of being released.

In the seven books and eight adapted films, we've encountered characters and creatures from all walks of life, some of which include house elves, giants, ghosts, centaurs, werewolves and, of course, humans. The world fell in love with characters like Dobby the elf, wizard twins Fred and George Weasley, headmaster of Hogwarts, Albus Dumbledore, and "the boy who lived," Harry Potter. While many of them may have only had supporting roles, they were all important parts of the final story.

Will you be able to identify all of the Harry Potter characters in this quiz from just one sentence? Will you find this quiz too difficult, or will you sail through it smoothly like Hermione did on her O.W.L.s? The only way to find out is to take this quiz!
