It's a lot safer and less controversial for countries to have their embassy in Tel Aviv.

Much of the world does not regard Jerusalem as the legitimate capital. One could spend a lifetime studying the issue, but for a primer, see: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Positions_on_Jerusalem

If anybody else is interested in the Canada question, I looked it up: 1867 - British North America Act, Canada becomes a self-governing entity in the British Empire instead of a colony governed by Britain 1931 - Statute of Westminster. Gave legislative independence to self-governing entities of the British Empire 1982 - Constitution Act. Full Canadian sovereignty

The crocodile question is a little vague. Don't mosquitoes prey on people in both? Even if you mean prey only as kill, then humans probably prey a lot more on people in both places.

I didn't find the question vague at all. I understood exactly what the quiz was asking. I'm just too stoopid to have remembered "crocodile". (still kicking myself)

Julius Caesar adopted Octavian as his son, and Octavian used the name (Octavian Caesar Augustus). Then Octavian adopted Tiberius, his wife's son by a previous marriage, who also used the surname (Tiberius Caesar). This was the Caesar ruling in Jesus' time. With time, the surname became more and more linked with the post, and later emperors were known as "the Caesar" even when they were not related to the Caesar family.

Coming from a Catholic, Gregorian chants are not used at any Catholic masses that I have been to. I still got the question, but it is inaccurate. There might have been those pre-Vatican II, but not anymore.
