It would be easier but quite misleanding while there are at least two places commonly called "Canton" - Guangzhou city and Guangdong province.

True, but as this quiz is about provinces, the confusion should be minimal.

Neimenggu should count for Inner Mongolia, just as Xizang counts for Tibet.

Maybe many people do the same as I do: take the test until they know them all (or until they are satisfied with their new knowledge). In my first attempt, I scored 8. Now, I get 24/33. I use this as a studying tool. Sorry for skewing the statistics.

It is easier if you speak Mandarin. For instance, Henan is Mandarin for southern river, (lit. "river south").

I was under the impression that each quiz only counts your first score and not the ones after that, although that may be incorrect.

If you know the words for the cardinal directions in Mandarin (dong = east, nan = south, xi = west, bei = north) you can get 19 easily simply by remembering to try the "opposite" direction. Everyone knows Hunan, so Hubei. Everyone knows Guangdong, so Guangxi, etc.

Its not a surprise to see regions like Tibet or Inner Mongolia being more recognized than other "Chinese" provinces because unlike those "provinces" these guys interact with the outside world, which makes it more known to foreigners. Hong Kong is worldwide known as British former controlled, and Macau was originally Portugues (Portuguese language in Portuguese) owned (so its also more known because its usually owned by a Western nation whom used to have a powerful and long empire) until the same time as Hong Kong's independence from Britain.

I think Sichuan is very famous for its mountains, pandas and increasingly popular cuisine, and that is why many people got it. It is a very good province, anyways. :)

This might be the most well known province in Occident, due to Sichuan pepper or other condiments lol. It might also be because this was historically the most populated in all China, or because people remember that Chongqing was removed from it not so long ago. All in all, a lot of people know about the Four Rivers Province (at least here in France) and there's a chance that if you ask people to name a province, it would be the first answered besides Xizang.

Actually, though, very few countries in the world recognize Taiwan as an independent government. I guess it's still controversial, I don't think it should be included in the provinces of China quiz, but at the same time I wouldn't dare delving into the argument here. :p

All though it is currently not a Chinese province due to the dispute it is most certainly not a country. Very few places including the UN do not recognize Taiwan as a country mainly due to the fact that it has always been a province of China. As soon as mainland China converts to a democracy Taiwan WILL be a province of China again.
