Your Last Final: Year in Review, Multiple Choice (5 Pts Each)

Were you paying attention this year, or were you stuck in Ryal Lab writing your year-long art thesis?

Each question below is worth 5 points. No partial credit will be awarded, but all reasonable, defensible answers will be accepted. The bonus question is worth 10 points. The first commenter to get all the questions right will win a yet-to-be-determined prize of significant value from ASCMC. If a senior wins, they will receive five bottles of champagne at graduation this weekend. Make sure you leave your real e-mail address in the e-mail field if you want a prize.
