According to Wikipedia, the most up-to-date name is "Republic of the Union of Myanmar", which was changed from the "Union of Myanmar". Naypyidaw has always been its capital since November 6, 2005. Also according to Wikipedia, the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka moved its capital from Colombo to Sri Jayewardenepura-Kotte on April 29, 1982. Hopefully that cleared everything up for everyone as it did for me. Although, the name should be changed from Burma to Myanmar.

It's not true that Burma and Myanmar are pronounced the same. I've been there in 2014 and many natives prefer the name of Myanmar (and pronounce it just the way we do), because the Burmese are only one of the tribes/people that live in Myanmar.

Yerevan and Ankara are in Asia, so Armenia and Turkey are out. Baku IS actually in Europe, so Azerbaijan should be in the Europe capitals quiz (since these quizzes are about capitals, not about the country itself). As for Cyprus, it is an island, so we measure by the closest landmass, which is Turkey. Since we already decided that Turkey is in Asia, Cyprus is in Asia too.

Jerusalem has always been the official capital of Israel, but most other countries recognize Tel Aviv as the capital and have embassies there because they don't want to upset Muslims. This has particularly been true since 1967 when Israel annexed East Jerusalem, which had previously been annexed by Jordan.

Azerbaijan and Georgia are transcontinental, that means they have area on two continents: Europe and Asia. They still have more area and population in Asia so they're considered Asian countries. The same goes for Turkey. Cyprus and Armenia don't have any territory in Europe, geographically they're completely in Asia. They're just in the same economic region as Europe along with Azerbaijan and Georgia. I'd call it Burma, not Myanmar because the language and script the language uses. The people are called Burmese. Myanmar is just what the military government that wants you to call it.

If you're trying to be as accurate as possible in using the corrected sri lankan capital then you also have to call burma myanmar, despite the political implications. It would make more sense to accept colombo and yangon.

Okay, I have a question. I have seen the capital of Oman (Mascat) spelt three different ways. I've seen it spelt Muscat, Mascat, and Masqat. I know Masqat is probably the Arabic-English translation of it, but I don't know if any other nations spell it differently. Is Muscat the correct spelling of it, or are all of them correct answers?
+1
level 73
Jan 20, 2015
The correct spelling is ู…ุณู‚ุท. The other you list are all transliterations using English/Roman letters, and there's not necessarily one that is more correct than the others, though Muscat is the most common spelling as far as I know.

THANK YOU 1000 times over! I had enough time to finish my first time! I know all of these but my scores sit around in the area where those who score under 100 on IQ tests are roped off (it's such fun in this section--we discuss whether the moon is a sun or a planet like the hosts on QVC, and what about Pluto?...how scientists fooled us unto believing global warming was real when it was really cold last night...all sorts of fun topics are reserved for us in the brain dead section).... simply because I cannot type faster. My right hand is a mess from carpal tunnel anyway..too numb to type. No one knows I can't type, unless I come here to play the speed typing tests disguised as Name the Countries and Name the Capitals--and they just make me feel dumb--no one else is looking. This is the very first I just clicked on one, (did not have to undo the timer) because I know I have learned them, and I completed them all 1st time!! TY so much! That was fun!

Accepting Bandar for Bandar Seri Begawan is like accepting 'City' for 'Kuwait City', since it is just the Malay word for city (or perhaps it is more closely equivalent to accepting 'Ciudad' for Mexico City).
