Thanks for the quiz!

The ii-V progression should be a half cadence rather than imperfect. I think it would also be helpful if you accepted "diminished seven" and "diminished 7" (or even "dim 7"), and "Picardy third" and "Picardy 3rd".

I agree with the picardy third, maybe also alto for alto clef?

Yes, picardy 3rd should be accepted. Your definition of tritone is vague. I did appreciate your quiz and surprised I've not found it before. I have 25 quizzes on classical music online. Perhaps if you renamed it with "classical music" as a heading it would get more attention?
