If it’s Friday, it’s time for the Los Angeles Times News Quiz! Your quizmaster Adam Tschorn here, serving up 10 fresh-out-of-the-oven, artisanal, California-focused, multiple-choice questions designed to test your knowledge and broaden your horizons.

A quick reminder of the rules: Everything you’re being quizzed on below has been pulled directly from a story that that appeared in the pages of The Times — web, print or both — over the previous seven days. This week — Feb. 9 to 15 — we tackle all kinds of fun topics you’ll remember reading (or perhaps would like to catch up on before proceeding), including a recently unveiled statue of Kobe Bryant, a towering downtown eyesore, unionizing efforts at Disneyland, that dog at the Academy Award nominees luncheon and an internet hoax involving one of my co-workers.

Are you ready to have some fun? I am.

Let’s get started.


Did you answer all of this week’s questions correctly? Good for you! Then try your hand (or at least your clicking finger) on last week’s News Quiz, which covers Times stories published from Feb 2. through Feb. 8, 2024.
