The instructions are as follows
"Ian McKellen is Sir Leigh Teabing, a man whose every move has been in preparation for a Grail Quest.

Question # 2: Which of these men was not rumored to be a Priory of Sion member?

a. Nicolas Poussin
b. Sir Issac Newton

For this answer, under the Wikipedia entry for Priory of Sion, we can find the answer.

Hint: Most of the above people were rumored to be the grandmasters of the Priory of Sion.

Question # 3: What is the name of the ancient Egyptian goddess of fertility?

a. Shiva
