Kudos to you and anyone else who scored 100%. I'm simply awful at world cities and capitals. From reading your past comments I suspect you've been to many of these. With the exception of Hawaii I've never been out of North America, but that's still no excuse for remaining ignorant. I need to "get with the program" and do some serious studying.

^ Don't worry, you're not the only one. I can name all the countries and am, well...kind of good at placing them geographically, but the capitals, oh man. There are so many I don't know. And of these listed here, I recognized the names of several, but missed them because I couldn't remember what country they were in, just that they were indeed familiar to me. Which is not much good, really. I sometimes avoid the cities quizzes because I suck at them so badly, but of course they actually do help.

I've been to 13/27 of these countries, almost half, but I've only been to 4 of the named cities.

... actually 5. I forgot my mom and I stayed one night at a hotel in Kawasaki last time I was in Japan.

I'm still thinking Lwow when it was Polish. Half of Poland was stolen by the USSR and they kicked the Poles out, called it Ukrainian, and in turn taking an enormous chunk of Germany, kicking the Germans out and calling that Polish. Wilson's 14 Points were given condescending acknowledgement at Versailles and rewritten like an Orwell treatise after the Second World War.

So what is the proper spelling of the capital of Mongolia? I've seen it as two words, and as one word. I've seen it with consecutive 'a's and with just one. I've always spelled it is Ulaan Baator, but it's different in this quiz, and different in the capitals of the world quiz.

Wikipedia says that it was formerly anglicized as Ulan Bator, but has been Ulaanbataar since the 40s. Just look at the article on Ulaanbaatar.

You mean it's Anglicized as any way its written or pronounced in English. Trying to spell a foreign word which uses sounds not used in English is futile. Anyone who contests English pronunciations of foreign places has already mastered tons of English as it is. They aren't kind of eager to learn how to say something familiar to them in a new language, while they are conversing with its native speakers? If I learned Chinese and spoke to Chinese people I would want to recognize how to say USA, New York, etc. instead of just going about clueless, proudly carrying on conversations yet missing my own country when it was mentioned. It's a small part of tens of thousands of bits of words, pronunciations, rules, syntax, idioms, customs that someone has already learned at the point that they whine about someone not saying some unpronounceable word because they suddenly don't want to advance any further into this language.
