A mathematics quiz on Sporcle that isn't just basic arithmetic

From Sporcle: name the famous mathematicians associated with some theorems.

I don't think I'm giving anything away by telling you that one of the answers is Euler. I also take issue with the result they give under this name (link goes to Wikipedia article with the same name as one of the answers).

I take issue with the way in which question #4 is stated... :P

Since all partially ordered sets are finite, I don't get the big deal about Zorn's lemma (and thus I got it wrong).
