One note, should you wish to improve or re-create this quiz:

Terminology varies; the following are the terms used by the USFA rulebook:

-The "head wire" is referred to as a mask cord

-The "body wire" is referred to as a bodycord (no space)

-The "chestplate" is referred to as a breast protector or a chest protector (unless you are describing the cloth under-arm protector, which can also be called a plastron)

However, it is great to see a fencing quiz on here! I had fun with it, and it's awesome to see that there are other fencers in the community! Keep up the good work :)
