Quidditch 2

1. On which day did the Order of the Phoenix come to get Harry?
c. Saturday
I'm not sure if you're allowed to fly Broomsticks on Shabbat. The prohibition against driving a car is based on the prohibition against lighting a fire, because you are burning gasoline in the engine. Which clearly wouldn't apply with a broomstick. However, if I recall correctly, one may not ride a horse on Shabbat because one might break a branch, which is prohibited. The legality of riding Broomstick would probably depend on how likely it is to break a twig off the tail in flight. Also, I'm not sure if you need to take into account that the Order knew Death Eaters would be firing at them and breaking pieces off the brooms. It would depend on how strong the causality is. I think.

2. During all this chaos with voldemort and the Death Eaters, people still had lives to live and Ron's oldest brother, Bill decided to marry Fleur Delacour? Who were the uninvited guests at Bill and Fleur's wedding?
b. Death Eaters
I don't think "Death" is kosher. I wonder if there were Jewish Death Eaters?

3. Voldemort had seven Horcruxes hidden in different places. Six of them were hidden at the Gaunt shack, Hogwarts, a cave, inside Harry, inside his snake, Nagini and Tom Riddles Diary. Did Voldemort hide the last Horcrux inside the Malfoy's vault at Gringotts?

b. That Dumbledore was friends with Grindelwald for a while.

6. When Harry and Hermione visit Godric's Hollow, they visit the graveyard to see Harry's parent's graves. Harry walks by a tombstone that we later learn belong to tone of "The Three Broother'. The brother buried there once owned what?
b. The cloak

7. The Trio finds out that Luna had been kidnapped by the Death Eaters , and that they won't give her back until they got Harry Potter. Why did they kidnap Luna?
a. Her father sided with Harry and Dumbledore
