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!

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.
