Bleeding, technically known as hemorrhaging.... Desanguination is a massive blood loss, and the complete loss of blood is referred to as exsanguination. I never knew that.

Took the quiz a second time, still missed it. I keep thinking hemorrhaging is confined to bleeding in the brain.

Hooligan seems like a strange term. The definition is more of a general troublemaker, not specifically someone who causes trouble at a game. Maybe it is just a local think in Europe.

I tried homebody because hermit didn't come to mind. But it's not the same thing, homebody is just someone who likes hanging out at home.

I think "Homeless" should be accepted for "Vagabond"

Why? A vagabond is a traveler seeking food, work and temporary lodging. Homeless does not infer traveling to seek work or food. You may be homeless living in your car or van, but ceratinly not a vagabond.

Homeless is an adjective. It cannot be a synonym for a noun like vagabond.

Homeless can also be a noun. E.g. "I went to feed the Homeless"

"People" is implicit at the end of "I went to feed the homeless". You wouldn't refer to one of them as "a homeless". At least I hope you wouldn't. You might also call them "the hungry", but not call one of them "a hungry".

Could 'homeless' be acceptable as an alternative to 'hobo'? The use word hobo is really uncommon and is fairly informal to an english person like me

Not the same thing. Though using hyperbole and expecting to be believed or taken seriously might indicate a certain level of hubris. Bigly.

Apologies to NYC - the first time I typed harem I accidentally inserted an L as the fourth letter and then couldn't figure out for a second why it wasn't accepted. A mind is a terrible thing to lose.

harem - somebody's misunderstanding of "haram," which means "forbidden." As in don't eat that meat (or, stay out of that room with those women) - it's forbidden.
