Sucre and La Paz, same country. You should have made a choice. Once one answers La Paz or Sucre, one assumes this is it for Bolivia and one looks for another country...

Just because it is the same country doesn't mean one should answer the other. They are both capital cities and they are both in the top 5 highest in the world. There's no need to change something that is perfectly fine given the wording of the quiz just because you forgot it.

It is not a weird assumption at all, I agree the way it is on the quiz is better and more logical, once you think it through, but on instinct (reflex from conditioning by other quizzes) not as weird a thought as you make it sound.

Especially since unlike bloemfontein/capetown/pretoria they new show up on a quiz individualy (where one of them is accepted but the others are not) Atleadt not that I ve seen.

Let's say we can use both capitals, why cape town is not on the Southernmost capital ? It is closer to the South (33° 55' 31" S) than Santiago (33° 26' 16" S) according to wikipedia...

The helpful thing to do would be adding a caveat that countries with more than one capital may appear multiple times in one category.

Kuala Lumpur having more international tourists than Beijing, Rome, Madrid, Vienna, Jerusalem, D.C., et al. is quite surprising.

I'm wondering what metric is used to measure "most expensive." London was a lot more expensive than Washington when I visited each of them last June, even when excluding the exchange rate.

Could do with an extra 30 seconds as a few of the categories are not immediately obvious.

I also wondered why New Delhi was given in advance. Why not just allow for both in the answer? Great quiz though.

I believe it is because New Delhi wouldn't make the list on its own, but Delhi does, and nerds might complain ;)
