Homer Simpson, apparently, which at least makes more sense than the poet who lived millennia before either English or England ever came about.

Level 59
Mar 3, 2019
Matthew07 whether you realised it or not, it takes rather an ignorant person to correct a spelling mistake that does not hinder the clarity of the meaning of the word or sentence, and when a person has not asked for any mistakes to be corrected. The point of language is to communicate meaning and that purpose was fulfilled

China will see a much larger population than expected due to the 'One Child Policy's end.
+1
Level 80
Nov 8, 2015
It will take a long time for this policy change to have a big impact on demographic trends. There may quickly be a bit of a baby boom... couples rushing to take advantage of the lifted restrictions to have a second child... but it will be 20 years before those new babies are able to start reproducing on their own. And even with 2 children per couple that's still not enough to sustain a population. You need 2.1 per woman in most countries- so even if every single woman had 2 children you still wouldn't meet this requirement, and of course some women won't. Add to that China's growing gender imbalance (33 million more men than women) and the figure would have to be even higher.

Stop using wikipedia as a source for quizzes like this; use the CIA World Factbook instead. https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/
+7
Level 64
Nov 17, 2016
May I ask why? Is it because "Wikipedia is untrustworthy"? Sorry to tell you, but every source is untrustworthy. Every source will differ from each other, and some are untrustworthy. Or is it because "anybody can edit on Wikipedia", rarely will there be incorrect information on Wikipedia, and people could notice the error and fix it. Also, you can check the references to see if the Wiki page and the sources are similar or not
+1
Level 45
Nov 23, 2017
According to the CIA World Factbook (updated July 2017), there are only a couple differences. Iran is ahead of Turkey, which is ahead of Germany and Tanzania fell to 26th (behind Myanmar/Burma and South Africa). So, the Wikipedia page is still accurate, for the time the data was received. As of July 2017, Iran has 1.3 million more people than Turkey, which has less than 300,000 more people than Germany.
