Could someone please explain the Paris answer? What is a bourse, and how do air show and commune relate?

The Bourse is the stock exchange. The Paris Commune was a revolutionary government, and the Paris air show is one of the world's most famous air shows.

I'm going to stick my neck out and say that the generic word for Carp, Elephant, Pear is so generic it's little recognised outside North America. ____ Pears yielded no results on Tesco.com groceries. (Admittedly when I just searched for Pears it only found Pears and Conference Pears). In the UK we call them Indian elephants. Well, maybe it's just us, then.

I think that "Nile" could be an acceptable answer for the Mississipi one. There's a Nile Delta, Cleopatra's nickname was Queen of the Nile, ad the Nile mud pies do actually exist. Another one that may accept another answer is "Polish". "British" may work for this one (although British notation is a little more ambiguous)

Some of these are barrel scraping. The Elephant one doesn't work if you're British. I've never heard of any of the clues for 5th, 6th, 14th, 15th or 17th questions. The seventh one is also very generic or obscure. Great series of quizzes, but this one is far too obscure.

Possibly a reference to the historical Sejm, a notable aspect of Polish government in the early modern era.

Could Philly be an accepted type in? I think at least with cheese steaks, it's generally referred by that more than Philadelphia.
