10 out of 10
I thought this was going to be very easy.
I was right.
Anyone who watches "M*A*S*H" would know all these.
The only "curveball" was Frank Burns' promotion, since he was already written out of the show when it came through after Margaret got married.

Not bad for someone who doesnt watch MASH..........................7/10

Could have done this without any options and without the "promoted from____ to what", which makes it even easier. They should have done this, but with lesser-known characters. Granted, I woulda probably gotten those right too

Easy Peasy, rice and cheesy.
Would you consider this a major accomplishment?

10/10, Captain Hawkeye salutes you! Aw, twern't nothing. That was easy for anybody who paid attention. The one about Klinger was tricky. He started as a corporal, but he got promoted to sergeant. A lot of people might have missed that.

but what would they have said? Surely he wouldn't be promoted from Corporal to Captain

Well, Radar was a "Corporal Captain" for about 5 minutes. 😉

10/10, was Burns promoted when he left?

He went nuts and attacked a general while on leave, screaming "Margaret! Margaret!" (Never seen on camera, Linville left the show at the end of the previous season). He was sent home, given a promotion and assigned to a state-side army hospital.
In the movie, Burns goes nuts, strikes McIntyre and gets sent home on a Section 8.
Kudos, on your answer.
However . . .
In the movie, Major Burns attacked Hawkeye. Don't you remember?
Hawkeye asked him about the 'reactions' of Major Houlihan from the night before.
When a microphone had been placed under the cot of Major Houlihan, as she and Major Burns performed some 'close order drills'.
She also gained her nickname 'Hotlips', the same night.

Max Klinger was a corporal from season one, episode 4 to season 10 episode 17. So he was a sergeant for only about one and a half seasons.

Of course, for Radar, answering "Lt." or "Corporal-Captain" would also have been correct.

That might be it! Thank you both. Oh well, it was just a minor major mistake.

You will of course be subject to corporal punishment (though in private).
