Welcome to the Los Angeles Times News Quiz. If you’re here to play for the first time, here’s how it works. (And if you’ve done this before — you know who you are — get on with the game!)

Each Friday, I serve up 10 handcrafted, California-focused, multiple-choice questions based on stories that appeared in The Times (in print or online) over the previous seven days. This week, for example, we’re taking a look at stories about 3,500 endangered Joshua trees, a Palo Alto donkey with a connection to the big screen, Biden’s border benchmark (try saying that five times fast) and what caused Rubio’s Coastal Grill to shutter 48 restaurants.

Not all Los Angeles pub quizzes are created equal. Here’s a guide to local bar trivia nights that bring a little something extra to the game.
