You only get one chance to answer all the questions per day, so each time you get one wrong you'll have to come back. Now, you can find all the answers around the island, mainly via the 'How well do you know Blackreef' notes scattered around various locations. However, if you want to save time then we've got all the answers here for you. Although if you really want to save time, don't bother for reasons we'll explain at the end.

What do you get for answering all the Queen of Riddles questions? 

Here's the bad news. All that trivia gets you… nothing. When you answer all the questions correctly the Yervha will reveal "the greatest secret of all", where she came from. A tape will then play of the Visionary Charlies explaining that the Queen of Riddles is a restored automaton, originally made at the turn of the century and the only working one left in existence. Yay, knowledge. The greatest gift of all.
