I got so many just by looking at the comments. Do people realise that you can look at the comments while completing the quiz, meaning that they can see where someone has mentioned that they missed one, therefore helping themselves to get more answers

I tried this quiz earlier tonight, forgot the Indian subcontinent (not India). A few hours later, remembered the Indian subcontinent this time, got most of the rest except one, which I didn't know if it was one I knew before. Just about to give up, when I suddenly remembered Iran. 8 seconds to go! 100%.

For some reason I would always forget one or two countries like Italy, Japan or Thailand. So what I did was envision a map and I would go through Europe to the Middle East then Africa on to Asia and then the New World. That makes it easy.

why would they accept it? then it won't be Philippines anymore. If they are going to accept incorrect spellings of the country then it will also offend the citizens of the said country taking this quiz.

China will see a much larger population than expected due to the 'One Child Policy's end.
reply

Oct 29, 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/

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
