Good quiz. A few were too obscure for me, others I almost knew, but just couldn't get them close enough. I knew it was some kind of animal hill where they found the portkey and tried several but just couldn't remember stoat. I almost knew the potion book - I was trying most evil potions, most ancient potions, etc. I knew Romilda put the love potion in chocolate candy, but no idea which ones. It's been too long since I read the books.
