Liturgical Quiz

I thought for a nice change of NLM activity here on Gaudete Sunday, some might be interested in testing their liturgical knowledge, particularly of the different Western liturgical rites. This can be a great way to both learn as well as to invoke discussion.

Provide your answers in the comments, and might I suggest that, for greater interest, people write their own responses before reading others?
