Currently, Sri Lanka has two capital cities. One is Sri Jeyawardenepura Kotte and the second one is Colombo. I have no idea why they put only one capital city. Some other countries do have more than 1 capital cities but people don't really recognize it.

SJK is just a suburb of Colombo, 9 km from downtown, and only the legislative capital. Downtown Colombo remains the judicial and executive capital. If we accept South Africa as having separate judicial and executive capitals, why aren't we treating Sri Lanka in the same way?

You are not allowed to think or read the country...you are expected to spew them out from memory...and be a super typist who can watch the box for typos not your fingers. It's not me. I could recite them--need a watch battery but when I get it I'll see how fast I can recite them....this typing makes me crazy...very strong trifocal lenses, and carpal tunnel...and the world's worst typist ever. This is a challenge! Wush Trader Joe's still made that Tranquility Tear! My typing and game scores improved dramatically on that!

There is enough time to go down country by country. Barely. You don't have much time to stop and think about each answer, though. Most of them have to come automatically.

Keep on trying, Malbaby. I've scored 100% the past couple of days after some three weeks of trying. I know I'll have to do this daily for a while to keep all the capitals in my head! But meeting a girl from Gabarone, having a friend near Naypyidaw right now, and having a cousin who spent time in Nouakchott is really helping me!!

Here is my very sneaky trick. Instead of learning which capital matches which country for the really hard regions like Oceania and Africa, write down the first letter of the capitals for a single row or section. Just that list of letters will jog your memory if you do it 10-15 capitals at a time. Then once you know all of the capitals, you can start matching them to the countries correctly. Thus I know Nukualofa and Ngerelmud, but do not ask me that their countries are, yet!!!

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.

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.
