Lesser-Known Punctuation Marks

You know period, comma, semicolon, asterisk, etc. but there are a lot more punctuation marks. Can you name some that we don't use all that often? Easier still, can you match the punctuation mark with its proper name? That's the challenge in today's Lunchtime Quiz at mental Floss. I am embarrassed to tell you I only got 3 out of 10 correct. I'm sure you can beat that! Link

6/10. A lot of the them I was able to deduce by the name ("bang" being a computer term for exclamation), or from similar terms (because being an upside-down therefore)
