a study of human populations could also be "ethnography", although its a cultural study

I too was surprised that "ethnography" didn't work. I understand the difference between the two, but it seems to me that the clue is just sliiiiightly broad enough to allow either answer.

Could you accept Agiography for Hagiography? Since Agiography is the most proper one.

Agiography yields nothing in a Google search, while hagiography actually comes up as a word. How is it "the most proper one"?

Steganography should also be acceptable for "Encoding information". I kept trying different spellings and was very frustrated because I couldn't think of anything else! Cryptography never occurred to me for some reason.
