Same here, read latitude only but God knows why I thought it as Altitude. Got all the rest

Exactly the same for me too - maybe with the word 'highest' being immediately before it (i.e. more closely associated with altitude) and only the first two letters being swapped around, the brain quickly scans it as 'altitude', unfortunately for us... I picked Beijing and, out of curiosity, I checked and I would have been correct! Above sea level - London altitude 11m, New York 10m, Paris 35m and Beijing 44m.

Same here. All the others sit at sea level. I thought it was an interesting question as misread though.

Only missed 1... Brazil has more population than Russia? Huh.

Level 67

Em yes, by quit a large margin. Brazil has 212,5 million and Russia 146 million.

Russia is ranking 9th and Brazil 6th, but is likely to be overtaken by Nigeria in about 2 years. (Currently at 206 million, but an annual growth rate of over 5 million)

I actually find it surprising that you would find that surprising. Russia's whole deal is that it's mostly empty. What I do find surprising is that Bangladesh has more people than Russia, despite Russia being 115 times larger in area.

I thought Cuba has a bigger percentage of Catholics than Poland, in which I live. The most unfortunate part about it is that the only question I got wrong was exactly that question.

I am very curious what people answered on the latitude question. It scored very low (57% atm) For those who missed it, did you think beijing or new york? (Im gonna assume hard anyone went for paris, paris and london being so close it is rather obvious which is lower)
