Very good quiz! I'm surprised this hasn't been featured as it mixes well-known with little-known elements making it challenging but not impossible. I do like the order you chose for the answers. It's apparent to those who know the quirks of the periodic table, but it's perhaps not obvious to all, adding a bit of a challenge without making it undoable.

I'm a bit surprised that more people knew that K was potassium than knew that S was sulfur.

They might have been guessing potassium for P.

It may be more widely known because it has medical relevance; for example people on certain blood thinners need to avoid foods containing "Vitamin K" because potassium helps blood clot. Whereas sulphur's medical relevance is primarily fart-avoidance...

K is also called Kalium. Could you accept that ? I only knew the original names, not the English ones... so missed several.
