Jane Austen Clergymen Quiz

It's seems like some time since I've done a game that is Jane Austen related so here is a little quiz all about the clergymen in Jane Austen novels. The questions are an assortment of multiple choice and write-in. I tried to keep it simple but also add a challenge for my fellow devoted Janeites out there! :)

To Play: Answer the questions below to the best of your ability and leave your answers in a comment. This time you have only one chance to answer each question so choose wisely! I'll respond with your score. Answers will be posted next Saturday.

Scoring: 10 points for each correct answer. A high score of 250 points can be earned.
