Cool quiz! The population of Turkey (which isn't listed) in Europe is around 7.5 million, and the population of Russia in Europe is around 110 million.

I think time is fine as long as you have some kind of strategy. I started with all the most populous countries. Down to about Belarus or Austria that was pretty easy. Then I went to the smallest and started going backwards. Up through Montenegro that was pretty easy. Then I went through the rest via process of elimination. For the letters that appear multiple times I'd jump through each occurrence of the letter guessing the same country until I got it. Then I just went through the mental map of Europe in my head scanning every country one by one, filling in the blanks.

Cyprus?

level 61
Jul 22, 2016
Ultimately, where Cyprus belongs amongst the continents is arbitrary, particularly since the boundary between Europe and Asia is ultimately conventional, so what matters is internal consistency. In this case, it's Jetpunk.com's standard to place Cyprus with Asia.

Valid point Q, though with Cyprus having 6 European Commissioners at the EU Council it's fairly safe to say they are certainly part of Europe, regardless of how Jetpunk currently view them.

Cyprus is listed as part of Europe on the world map quiz (as well as other quizzes on Jetpunk) while they are nearly always seen as part of Europe in general so not sure why they were left out here

No, more time does not need to be added. More often than not, these quizzes are about invoking rational thinking and, even more often, using your knowledge base to answer the questions in the quiz; NOT try to name every country at every letter in the quiz, then time becomes useless and why even have a time limit at all?

Cool quiz! I missed only 2 this time around. And the allocated time felt fine to me. I agree with another poster that anything more would be too generous. I still had plenty of time to try several possibilities for M and S countries.

Finished with over a minute left, I feel like the time was pretty good. Really, if you know the countries of Europe, it's not too bad. They mostly just seem "sensible" to me, in that it's all about where I expect. It helps that there's some regional grouping with most of Scandinavia right next to each other and a bit with the Balkans as well.

This quiz doesn't need more time. Quizzes aren't just supposed to be fun, they also need to be challenging every once in a while. A moderately fast typer with a good memory and rough idea of European country populations would find this quiz easy. Besides, you can take a quiz untimed for practice.
