2. _____ Harry, Ron, and Hermione go to get water for breakfast and meet students their age from Durmstrang School and The Salem Witches’ Institute as well as friends from Hogwarts.

4. _____ Barty Crouch accepts a cup of tea from “Weatherby” and talks about his grandfather’s flying carpet “as though he wanted to leave nobody in any doubt that all his ancestors had abided strictly by the law.”

5. _____ Hermione buys Ron and Harry pairs of Omnioculars for watching the Quidditch Game and Ron was a bit “touchy about the fact that” Hermione “had much more money than he did.”
