Agreed with DudiJG, also 'Solidarnosc' should be accepted for 'Solidarity', it being the Polish name.

Accept "Skłodowska" for the nobelist - she was Polish after all and she only accepted her husband's surname as the second one

Firstly Maria Skłodowska also should work because it was her real name: Maria Skłodowska-Curie. Secondly we all Poles use names pierogi and pączki. 3rd issue I didn't know how to spell Tur in English. 4th The last king was Stanisław August Poniatowski. Stanislaw was only his first name, in Poland we call kings by their surnames. 5th Also Mikołaj Kopernik should work because it is his real name. 6th First name of Chopin is Fryderyk not Frederic. 7th Oder id Odra in Polish so it also should work. 8th I think Solidarność is more popular name than Solidarity of that trade union. But thanks for making quiz about Poland :) you probably didn't know about those facts.

If you ask for a dumpling (singular), then the right answer is pierog - pierogi is the plural form!

Accept Odra and Wisla since those are the only names Polish people use for the rivers. Also "paczek" should also be accepted since it's the singular version of paczki.

It's clear that this quiz has not been made by a Polish person and has A LOT that could be improved: 1) Original, polish names of Vistula (Wisła) and Oder (Odra) should be accepted as an answer. 2) Curie's name was Maria SKŁODOWSKA Curie, not just Curie. "Skłodowska" should be accepted as an answer as well. 3) "Pączki" means "donuts", plural. A single donut that the question is about would be "pączek". 4) Original, polish name of Copernicus - "Kopernik" should be accepted as an answer. 5) Again, "pierogi" means "dumplings", while a singular dumpling would be "pieróg". 6) The last polish king is known as either Stanisław II August OR Stanisław August Poniatowski, that is way more popular for the polish people but "Poniatowski" is somehow not an accepted answer. 7) Polish name of Solidarity - "Solidarność" should be an accepted answer as well.

Someone please fix this quiz, it's very confusing in many ways, as written in previous comments ;_; Like, ok maybe we're on an English site, but it doesn't explain making Marie just a "Curie" or asking for singular dumpling/donut and not accepting a singular answer.

How you expect answers if you don't accept correct spelling or non Polish keybord. Solidarity should also be accepted as Solidarnosc and Paczki you cant spell different in English you need Polish keybord
