您贵姓 should work fine. As a native speaker I'm unable to pass your test...

They keep changing out the result to correct answer, which is making it hard to learn by memorization for me.

I think the hints should be a little clearer on this, I always struggle to remember this one and the hints don't seem to be in a correct order

你貴姓is a more polite form of 你姓甚麼

It would be helpful that they write the English translations as well as the sounds the characters make when you have to do pair matching. All I know for sure is what sound goes with which character, I know nothing about what it means. And even the slow speech is too fast to fully hear every syllable.

I'm a total beginner, why is ne (?) not necessary here?

You can add it there but it isn't necessary, the shen me already asks the question, ne here would be to change the tone of the question to a friendlier, softer one.

These orders seem strange for natives, just like someone say "your name what ?"
