Here is another electronics quiz for you to try. It covers the functions of resistors in various circuits. The quiz appeared in the January 1962 edition of Popular Electronics. I got 100%, just for the record. Having worked with tubes helps with figure B since it does not really have a direct transistor equivalent, but by process of elimination you can get it.
