Great Quiz but I would disagree with two questions

I think quest 13 is not very clear as technically the epicentre is also on the crust and for question 17, I though composite cone volcanoes are only found at destructive (subduction) plate boundaries because there are no gaps in the crust in collision boundaries for magma to rise and form volcanoes.

But still lots of help! Thanks! :)
