I'm 35 and had never heard that term before. I never thought there might be a specific name for those cases, to me they're just cases, period. However I'm not in the US and English isn't my first language

I guessed De because the last two were Oc (October) and No (November) so I guessed De (December). I have no idea what the first part means, since it clearly doesn't fit into the month analogy. Lucky guess, but I'm as baffled as you are!

In general, it's just numerical roots counting up, or at least close. Sq breaks the pattern (since it's square) but otherwise, it matches up with Latin counting roots.

From Wikipedia:

In the late 12th century, Robert de Boron wrote in Joseph d'Arimathie that the Grail was Jesus's vessel from the Last Supper, which Joseph of Arimathea used to catch Christ's blood at the Crucifixion. Thereafter, the Holy Grail became interwoven with the legend of the Holy Chalice, the Last Supper cup,

I wish there weren't 2 questions based on other answers. I would guess that the vast majority either miss both or (in this quiz's case) get both. It seems to make the quiz out of 18, rather than 20. If the follow-up was trickier it might be better, but even then, 20 unrelated questions would be preferable. At least for me :)
