Seriously. It's not. Look it up. Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte (or just Kotte) is listed as the official administrative capital in most up to date and authoritative sources. It is a suburb of Colombo, and there are some government offices still in Colombo itself, but the legislature has been in Kotte since the early '80s.

Britannica, Lonely Planet and Free Dictionary all say Colombo. CIA Factbook says both SJK and Colombo are capitals, SJK the legislative one, and Colombo the commercial, judicial and executive one. SJK is a suburb just 5 miles from downtown Colombo.

Is there a version of this quiz that isn't nerfed for spelling? It really isn't that hard to learn the proper spellings, even for the names that are unusual for English speakers. If you can memorize 196 capital cities then memorizing the spellings for a handful that are difficult shouldn't pose a problem.

In my opinion, I think people think Sri Lanka's capital city is Colombo because Colombo is the largest city in Sri Lanka. The largest city in the country are easy to recognize than the capital city(if the capital city is not also the largest city).

there is enough time; if you know all of them there is indeed enough time; i have done it with 30 seconds left on the clock; you have to know them really well though; some experience with dealing with them also helps because the connection in the brain sets up to an instant; keep practicing them on regular basis, even at school or with your friends (make it fun) and you'll become an expert :P good luck!

Niue is an associated state of New Zealand, not recognized by anyone as a sovereign nation state.

From Wikipedia: "Niue is not a member of the United Nations, but UN organisations have accepted its status as a freely-associated state as equivalent to independence for the purposes of international law. As such, Niue is a full member of some UN specialised agencies (such as UNESCO and WHO), and is invited to attend United Nations conferences open to "all states".

Constant scrolling, which doesn't always want to scroll (likely to be my phone, it is often a pain) I could just zoom out and I could see half of the countries before. You did that half, scrolled down once, did the other half. Boom. Either way, its slowing me down, 12 minutes used to be plenty of time. Guess Ill just have to learn how to cope with it! Should definatly be an option though I think!

ITA. And how about all the words where the last letter is left off--so if you type it, it's a typo on tthe next word. So I start a string of six or more that will disappear when I erase that 1st letter, but only one counts and the rest are in my head as typed, but they aren't. So it's over. Times out before I can look up everything on the list. I wish they'd just credit any word correctly typed regardless of what's in front of it.

I wish there was consistency with the capitals that have "City" in the name - Guatemala and Vatican don't require City, but Mexico, Kuwait, and Panama do. I'm not watching the box so I type City and then start on the next one, only to have to backspace and correct.

As a person from Tallinn, Estonia, it's sort of annoying to start writing the next capital, Helsinki, when the last n of Tallinn is left on the screen. However, I think this quiz would be even better if it had the requirement to name all the capitals of countries, which have several capitals.
