I agree. As a typical American working-class stiff, albeit with a college degree, with just a passing knowledge of French culture, I was able to answer four out of the five test questions. It was only because I don't speak French and had read Flowers of Evil in translation that I didn't recognize the quote at first.

I think any educated person with a working knowledge of French would have been able to answer all of the questions. The first film version of Les Liaisons (the "modernized" version) was a fairly recent release in the States at that time.
