This quiz is using CFA terminology - I'm afraid it's leaving me a bit stuck, as in the UK there is no such thing as an Ebony or Chestnut OSH, and it wouldn't occur to me to refer to them as such! We also call them 'self' rather than 'solid'. OSH come in the following self colours in the UK: Black, Blue, Lilac, Red*, Cream, Apricot, Cinnamon, Caramel, and Fawn. We also have the Foreign White and the Havana.
I am finding the CFA terms too confusing to be able to answer some of these, because while I know the OSH colours as registered with the GCCF I wouldn't know whether the CFA call them the same or something different.
* because I know someone will point out that red self is a bit of a strange case, yes it's an odd one - the GCCF allow red self with faint tabby markings but not pronounced.
