Just out of curiosity, if it's just been reset, what was the answer change? Those capitals have been the same for decades :)

Well that was much easier than I expected... start with Canberra.. then name every large city in Australia I could think of + Hobart because I knew that was right and Darwin since nothing else is up there... didn't even have to use backspace.

My name is Nicole, and I'm fourteen years old. This is my 1st time, that I've done this quiz, and I had 8/8 correct, with 1:9 remaining. In my class I'm nicknamed ,,The Worldmap", because everyone says, that I'm extremely good, at countries and capitals. I can do 168 countries and 121 capitals out of 196 nations. (Without Google searching.)

You may be "The Worldmap" but you might need to retake English class and learn how to use commas.

Thought I might maybe get 1 or 2. Got all 8. Man, Australian capitals are so straight forward, unlike the states. If it wasn't the capital nobody outside of Carson City would know what it is. Same deal with things like Jefferson City, or Baton Rouge, etc. Alright my rant is over.

There are 50 state capitals in USA and only 8 in Australia, and I'm pretty sure there are plenty of people in the world (including most Americans) who haven't heard of all the Australian capitals either.

Yeah, but the point here is that the Australian capitals are the biggest cities in the area whereas US capitals are more often smaller cities. In Australia knowing the 10 biggest cities gives you the capitals. In the US you need much more than the 50 biggest cities to cover all capitals.
