Why is Colombo not an alternative for the capital of Sri Lanka? Like South Africa Sr Lanka has more than one official capital city - they are all recognised for South Africa but not for Sr Lanka, apparently.

So glad it accepted Sri Kotte. I was thinking something like "Sri... er, miss a few, Kotte!" And I managed to spell Antananarivo correctly first time!! Yay! Otherwise did terribly. But oh well.

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.

West Jerusalem, at least, is unambiguously in Israel, so I don't think Israel's occupation of East Jerusalem should mean that "Jerusalem" isn't Israel's capital. If a country names a city in its territory the capital, that shouldn't be subject to foreign approval.

The original plan (that Muslims always rejected; which became irrelevant shortly after the British left because of the Arab invasion) had all of Jerusalem as an international city. The reality that followed was that Jordan occupied and annexed the eastern half of the city including all of the old city, with the IDF controlling what was west of the territory annexed by Jordan. The 1949 Armistice Line divided the city into east and west. Then in 1967 Israel won another war against her hostile neighbors, annexing Jerusalem in its entirety.
Funny to me that the world accepts without question the "illegal" Jordanian occupation and annexation... but everything that Israel does is seen as illegitimate. When the Jordanians took the city they completely leveled the Jewish Quarter of the Old City and expelled all Jewish inhabitants. Israel didn't do that Muslims when they took it back.
Anyway. The Knesset is in "West Jerusalem". Realistically the whole city is inside Israel today.

I would call the illegal Jordanian occupation of Jerusalem for what it was, which was illegal. I don't know of anyone who accepts Jordan's occupation of East Jerusalem then as being "legal" - let alone the "whole world"!!! All of that is a bit off-topic here though, because this quiz, and thread, is about capital cities, and Jordan has never proposed Jerusalem as its capital.

Many countries have multiple capitals (India with Bombay and Delhi, South Africa with Pretoria and Johannesburg) which increases 196 to 200ish capitals. It's really annoying trying to find names that work if there is multiple accepted ones too. Countries > capitals

Johannesburg has never been the capital of South Africa. It does have three capitals though: Pretoria (executive), Cape Town (legislative) and Bloemfontein (judicial). Johannesburg is merely the largest city and economic hub of the country.

Bombay is no longer called Bombay--it's Mumbai--and it is not the capital, nor has it ever been the capital of India. It was only the capital of the region under the British (who founded it) and was, anyways, subordinated to Calcutta (now Kolkata) for the majority of British rule until the capital was moved to New Delhi.

its been a long time since I've had to memorize capitals and countries way back in 8th grade more than 20 years ago!! I had them about all memorized back then but I've forgotten a lot since then and some have changed. This is a good test but to try and type on my phone just seems impossible to ever do, I was just getting started with Africa when my time ran out and I was skipping a lot still too not really taking much time to think about it and still well short. 119 is all i could get. Not too bad I guess considering I just got started with Africa with my slow typing

So the time limit is 12 minutes. With 196 capitals to type out, that leaves you with an average of 3.67 seconds per capital. I find it hard to believe (sorry) that someone who is 14 or younger has the typing skills of an office professional.

Kids grow up using computers and for them to type out all of the capitals in 12 minutes would only be about 20-30 words per minute. Which is really slow.

Knowing your way around a computer and knowing how to type are 2 different things. I seriously doubt a 10 year old can type proficiently with no mistakes. Even if you can recall all the capitals quickly, you have to be spot on with your spelling, and that is where you lose time.

I don't know if someone has already commented this - but 101 comments is quite a lot to look through! Is it possible to use 'colombo' for the capital of Sri Lanka? I'm learning the capitals on Memrise, who allow both Sri Jayawardenapura and Colombo (albeit the latter with a * !) But it's such a long name to type that this really would make it a lot easier to score higher within the time limit!

Fun fact about Palau. The "capital", Ngerulmud, is nothing but the name of a small hill on which they built the Capitol building (actually, the EU built it... There's lots of foreign help/investment in that country). There is no population there, just one building: the government. Literally the population is zero in Ngerulmud. BUT it's not part of Melekeok, the state in which it is found, because it was given to the federal government by the state of Melekeok (so presumably it's no longer the state's). But there's no special status as far as i could find for Ngerulmud, like DC or the Australian Capital Territory have. So you have the strange situation of a stateless capital with no human inhabitants. I went there on a Sunday and the government was closed and I'm pretty sure I was the only human in Ngerulmud at that particular time. I parked in the spot marked "President"... He seems cool and I didn't think he would mind.
