I would not have guessed the answer to the Russia question even with a few extra minutes. I actually learned something new from one of these quizzes! :-)

Yeah that was by far the most interesting part of this quiz. Makes sense if you think about it (longer than I usually think about the answers on a general knowledge quiz, that is).

Hi, small fault located again. There should not be an apostrophe in "its native language". (Don't you love these pointless little corrections?)

I remembered the cerebrum and the cerebellum, so I figured the part in front must be the antebellum. I guess not.

I remembered those two as well, though didn't think antebellum. You would think they would be more difficult to remember than brain stem.

I put medulla oblongata for brain stem. Not good enough, I guess, but that's what I learned was the third part as a child.

I did the same. I tried spelling medulla oblongata a ton of different ways, too, but clearly never spelled it like 'brain stem.'

I've had Chiari I Malformation surgery - you'd think I would have gotten brain stem - but I was another one who was taught in school that the third part was the medulla oblongata and everything else was part of those three, so nope, I missed it.

Accept forebrain/midbrain/hindbrain for the brain question? It's the more standard way of dividing up the structure of the brain.

The Russian question should probably mention that it is only counting native speakers, since around a third of Mongolians have Russian as a second language. The primary source of that information is in Russian, but Wikipedia has a visualisation of it: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Russian_language_status_and_proficiency_in_the_World.svg

Color me blushing red. I live in Israel and missed the Russian question - even though I know how prevalent the language is here - daily newspapers, radio stations, even at least one local tv station, and supermarkets (mostly imported products from Russia and Poland). Most cosmetic products and all medicines have instructions in Russian.

I have no idea what the cerebrum or the cerebellum are, or how I got them straight away, but I guess it was one of those parts that was responsible.
