Bodh Gaya is the place, not the tree.

Banyan trees are not the same as bodhi trees. Same genus, different species.

Quit India was rather a MOVEMENT than a speech.

If I'm wrong blame the history textbooks.

The T language question could maybe be changed to be more specific or accept Telugu which is spoken near the same area as Tamil, just not quite as far south. Both are Dravidian languages which are considered to be the "southern India" languages.

No need to shout !! And there is no need to fix, dahl is correct, dal is correct too though, so it should definitely be accepted if it is not already. There is more than one acceptable spelling for this word.

Edit: em nvm the part about being accepted haha, writing this I had already forgotten the exact questions of the quiz... haha

Lot of silly mistakes which are common for a foreign to make when talking about India.

Ganpati should be accepted for Ganesha, Dahl is actually better known as Dal and lentils are also called Pulses. Gandhi has said a lot of things and Quit India was perhaps a speech of him but it was popular as a movement. And Vedic should be accepted for Vedas
