Very fun quiz. Was this partially inspired by my Very Tricky Analogies quiz? Some of the hints are similar. I had many more geographical analogies in mind for that one but I wanted to mix things up. Didn't occur to me to make a whole quiz just on that one subject.

I got everything except Alps, Alberta, Krakatoa and Kiliminjaro on my first go. Some of these were a bit tricky.

I got Deutschland by typing in Alemania.

Very good quiz. Very original. Needs more alternate spellings for Deutschland. I knew the answer but couldn't get the spelling and had to look up the spelling.

Added more accepted spellings for Deutschland. I forgot to do it originally.

I'm nit-picking here, but Ayers Rock has no apostrophe. Looked it up when I got it wrong and the guy it's named after was Sir Henry Ayers.

Unlike most nit-pickers on JetPunk, you're actually correct. Fixed the clue, thanks!

More of these please. But I gotta say, Babylon is not at all near Baghdad.
+1
level 76
Jul 17, 2013
Baghdad is about 85 km from the site of Babylon. Tunis is about 53 km from Carthage. Seems like an appropriate analogy.

Thank you. Exactly what I was going to say. And, yes, I was inspired by your tricky analogies quiz.

I kept writing Mumbay for some reason. Perhaps because the Bomba ends in "y".

Can you accept Krakatau as ana acceptable spelling for Krakatoa? That's how I'm used to seeing it spelled in textbooks.

Got 'em all today but with 2:57 left - getting slower as I get older, I guess. Still love analogy quizzes - makes up for all the satellite image quizzes I totally fail.

Lol, I thought when they said Chicago to Michigan it meant Michigan State, so I drove myself crazy trying to think of another state fitting with Cleveland for that analogy.

I'm guessing 65% thought similar - can't think of another reason why it's so low; there's only four more to choose from

Another reason might be that few people outside of North America would know the lakes off the top of their head.

You should specify Michigan as Lake Michigan. I though you were referring to Michigan Ave so I tried typing in Euclid

The location of Hainan/Tasmania in relation to mainland China/the main part of Australia is also very similar. That's how I got it. Wasn't even thinking about size.

You should accept Hawaii for Honolulu; Oahu is sometimes called Hawaii
+2
level 79
Jun 1, 2018
No, Hawaii and Oahu are two different islands. Hawaii can refer to the entire island chain, of course, but that's not what the question is looking for.

So - Chicago isn't in Michigan. What state isn't Cleveland in? Hmm. Forget the box - just think!

For 'Chicago is to Michigan' I thought I was supposed to look for a state...

Kept insisting on "z" instead of "s" in Brasilia. Given all the other misspellings that are accepted, shouldn't this be close enough?

Excellent! Got them all with 1:44 remaining at 5:40:38 PM. The last guess was a lucky one.
