Nice Quiz.
Is #5 right? I came up with a different answer off the top of my head.

Trying it without looking things up. Confident on some, but educated guesses on others:

I know #10 is general concensus, but has it been officially confirmed that's who she is?

@ Shadar

Yeah the answer to #5 is correct. Kind of a trick question, because of the scene with Rand and Mat trying to eat a hot cake while unloading the barrels from the cart. That scene fixes hot cakes in your mind. However it is mentioned 5 or 6 times in different places how good Marin's bread is. Even "Lord Luc" mentions that it is the best he's ever tasted.

@ Tim

I don't think it has been "officially" confirmed, but the evidence is overwhelming:
A: We know that Satalle Anan was an AS
B: We know that Martine Janata burned herself out studying terangreals.
C: Satalle Anan was rescued in Ebou Dar shortly after the events in B.
D: Satalle Anan exhibited an very deep interest in Mat's Foxhead terangreal.

Now it is certainly possibly that there was another AS burned out at the same time as Martine, it seems a bit unlikely.

@Old Salt: Ok. That's what I thought. I agree that she is 99% likely to be her, but just wanted to make sure I didn't miss the official revealing in TGS somewhere.
