I notice that while the quiz writer was fastidious enough to put the exclamation mark on "Oliver!", he/she was not quite fastidious enough to do the same for "Oklahoma!".

Didn't get credit for "ochorina". There have been a lot of misspellings more egregious than this accepted.

The term "ochorina" only applies to ocarinas that have exactly 8 holes.

I hate to be a pedant but I don't think an octave is 8 notes because note doesn't really mean anything - a much better description would be "an interval of 12 semitones"

I think it's fine. Unless specified otherwise it's normal to assume that the notes being referred to are those of a diatonic scale.

Notice how people who begin with "I hate to be a pedant" never let that stop them?

Better pedantry- the interval of 12 semitones is a function of the development of equal temperament in the 18th century; before that, the octave was thought of as 8 tones (hence oct-ave) which could be sharped or flatted.
