Time's a bit short. Especially considering question 2, which I didn't even bother thinking about since it would've taken like half the time given.

Timer is way too short, AT LEAST one minute should be added.

Also, question 12 is imprecise for obvious reasons.

Thanks.....I've added a minute. I do not think question 12 is imprecise as I cannot find another island (larger then the answer) that China administers, can you?

Great questions, I really liked this quiz.

I think a few of them could be tidied up a bit though:

- #3 (make it a question, like #13)

- #7 (shorten it!)

- #8 (interesting, but you can just type them all and get it... How about, "Name an African capital that lies further north than Damascus." - accepting Tunis, Algiers, Rabat. Not exactly what you were hoping to point out, I know...)

- #11 (I kinda get this one, and it's really good, but the capitals of a few countries are closer to the equator, so maybe it should ask for the capital closest to "the point 0.00 lat, 0.00 long")

- #2 / #4 / #5 / #14 / #16 (use words for low numbers: "three", "two", "third" - no need to put "3rd" in parentheses, etc)

- #Various (random capitalisations bother me - #20 is an example!)

I'm only suggesting some minor edits to your excellent quiz - sincerely thanks for the work you put in to it, I enjoyed it a lot!
