Harry Potter Spell Quiz
Harry Potter is a great fantasy book which was originally meant for children.I was so crazy with the characters of Harry, Ron and Hermione and their adventures in the book that I even made an English play out of it in school. The book was so interesting that my mother used to read it and quiz us on it. The most common knowledge we tested were the different spells used in the book. So I thought of coming up with a quiz for the spells. This quiz is neither too easy nor too tough. If you have enjoyed the book, you will be able to remember most of it. Let me know how you score.
