No doubt I got this idiotic question wrong on an Anatomy exam somewhere along the line...which two joints contain tendons?

Knee and shoulder?

Hmm, I probably would think hip joint for one of them - ligamentum capitis femoris passes through the joint capsule I believe. Is that what you're asking?

That's a ligament (bone to bone). The closest I can come to figuring it out after looking at Netters is the Rectus Tendon that joins the patella as part of the knee and the subscapularis tendon within the shoulder.

Of course, since these are the obvious answers, I'm sure they are incorrect.

I hated anatomy when I was taking it, I hate it even more now when it rears its ugly head and interferes with the practice of medicine.
