Curious about the answer to "most languages spoken". What's the criteria? Because I have to imagine there are more unique languages spoken in "melting pot" countries like the USA.

How about India? It has a lot of native languages. About how many people need to speak a language for it to be counted as a language for a language quiz?

Can you really not be bothered to type two more letters. Is this really how lazy we are now? It’s not like you’d even do it on a timed quiz. It probably takes .01 seconds to write the extra -ia. Fair enough for KSA for Saudi Arabia or NZ for New Zealand but that is straight up lazy!

Everytime I need to type the total length of saudi arabia in a timed quiz, I sigh.. and time stands still, It 
seems to take forever and so many vowels that can go in the wrong place ;).
Obviously I am exaggerating a bit, but it ís the only one which I wish was shorter/had an abbreviation 
(And yes that is including the ones that are longer, they just flow better, I never use png, always type 
papua new guinea btw)

MIght I suggest Sa-Ar as an abbreviation? :) Or S-Ar(a)

"Greatest source of foreign born residents of the Netherlands" - a similar question is on every quiz in this series and it always confuses the heck out of me. I still don't understand what it is asking. Could someone please word it differently for me so I can get it through my thick noggin, and maybe I'll remember next time?

I also find the question confusing. It sounds like it is asking which countries grant Dutch passports (as when the Netherlands has a colony, or like France for all its colonies). The question should be better phrased "... living in the Netherlands"
