General suggestion: in quizzes like this, where the quiz maker can basically make it as long or as short as he/she wants, I'm always very grateful when there are at least 20 questions. This allows quiz takers to get the full 5/5 points for 95% correct, even if they miss one question. Thanks!

+2! I was coming here to write the same comment. I understand why the QM doesn't list all the possible answers in the quiz per say, but it would be nice if we had them all in the "Answer stats" section (as is the case in some other quizzes). Great quiz, by the way! Love the "Name a valid..." series. :)

You are missing a lot of capitals named for persons born after 1500 A.D. I may miss some as well but (excluding Washington D.C.), I count 15+2: Brazzaville, Castries, Gaborone, Georgetown, Malabo, Mbabane, Monrovia, Nur-Sultan, Port Louis, Port Moresby, Pretoria, Valletta, Victoria, Wellington, Yamoussoukro; and in addition, Bendar Seri Begewan and Nassau are potential candidates.
