22. Where are Boris and Minka from?

a. Chicago

b. Los Angeles

*c. The Old Country

d. Poland

To be precise, Poland should also be correct -- here's an explanation from a fan:

As you know in one of the Season One episodes Boris is said by the captioning to be 
speaking Polish yet in the "Chanukah" episode, he is said to be from Russia. How can
these two facts be reconciled? Well, by a little detective work they can. In one of the "classic 65" (I forget the episode title) Boris says he is from Vilnius
(now the capital of Lithuania)
. Vilnius was part of Poland from 1921 (ceded by Russia
to Poland under the Treaty of Riga)
until Russia and Germany invaded the country in 1939.
As Boris appears to be in his late sixties or early seventies this would mean he was born
in the period when Vilnius was part of Poland which makes him Polish by birth. Boris saying
he is from Russia could simply refer to the fact that when he left the area it was under
Russian rule.
What do you think of this?

23. What is the name of Angelica's mother Charlotte's assistant?

*a. Jonathan

b. Morgan

25. What religion is Tommy Pickles?

a. Buddhist

b. Hindu

c. Catholic

*d. Half Jewish / Half Christian
Even though Tommy's family celebrates both Jewish and Christian holidays, the part of him being half-Christian was never proven in a "Rugrats" episode, especially since Stu and Drew occasionally uses Zen on some activities, and Zen, of course, has its Buddhist roots.

26. What nationality are Kimi and Kira?

*a. Japanese

b. Mexican

c. African

d. French
While they are definitely of Japanese descent, their nationality was never brought up in the movie, or the series. It is very likely that Kimi could be a French citizen (or a dual, French / Japanese citizen), as she might have been born in France, but as for Kira, she is probably still a Japanese citizen, or a French citizen who used to be a citizen of Japan.

25-30 A milk toast to you! You are one baby buff who's never caught napping (at least not during Rugrats).
15-24 The world is your playpen. Take one step over the rail.
8-14 Don't cry. You gave it the old nursery school try.
0-7 Bone up by watching the next Rugrats marathon, and try again.
