Lessons: These regs are tricky but most often contain the answer, if you take the time to look at them closely, and consider all relevant facts.
Assuming you know the answer is a recipe for failure. You can easily be tricked by a detail, even if you are generally familiar with the exemptions and salary basis rules (what this quiz focuses on).
