After defeating Bowser, you can find Mayor Pauline waiting for you in front of Town Hall in New Donk City. If you talk to her, she will have quiz questions to learn more about her.

These questions include things like “What is my most treasured possession?” and “What do I plan to eat for dinner tonight?”. They appear in a random order, making it difficult to memorize the answers.
