I feel like a failure as a Washingtonian for missing Puget Sound. To be fair, I never thought it would show up on a quiz alongside more famous landmarks and it didn't even cross my mind

Ganga River Delta should be accepted for Ganges River Delta. Keep in mind that "Ganges" is the incorrect name for the river and is only a Western nickname since the British could not pronounce Ganga. The names of many Indian geographical aspects have been changed because the British were bad at the pronunciation of cities, river, etc. If you still want to keep "Ganges", at least accept "Ganga" as an answer.

Always interesting these satellite images. There always seems to be one that I can't just bring to mind...... then say "of course".

I recognised Puget Sound, I just didn't know it was called like that. Recognised Lake Baikal too, I just thought it was spelled Baykal, which the quiz didn't accept.

Headquarters of the US defense department, one target of the 9/11 hijackers, by far the largest office building in the world, and pretty easy to recognize from this angle by its distinctive shape.

I tried New Zealand North and it didn't take it so I thought I was wrong. Just saying North island is a bit of a swiz as so many North islands even if this is so distinctive.

Looks like you're going to have to change the description "autonomous region" for Hong Kong. Who could have ever seen that coming?
