Here are the answers from last week's quiz.
Which of the following is true about the Sprint Goal? Choose One
The Sprint Goal is created by the Scrum Team during Sprint Planning
The Sprint Goal is created by the Product Owner during Sprint Planning

Release Burn-up charts are optional in Scrum. Only the Daily Scrum is required.
Scrum requires a "Done", potentially releasable product Increment by the end of every Sprint?
