"Most populous city starting with the letter K"

Typed Karachi. Typed Kolkata. Couldn't come up with any other cities larger than Kinshasa that start with K. Oh, you're supposed to type the name of the country??? Sonova...

You know, I did the same thing. Don't know whether there's a way to word it that makes clear you're looking for the country name, not the city.

@Dijilas:

As you well know, quiz titles on JetPunk are not always accurate descriptors of the quiz's contents.

I made a similar faux pas at first, thinking I had to confine my answers to African countries. D'oh!

Reread the question. It isn't asking for you to name another country who's largest city starts with K, it's asking you to name a country with a city that starts with K that has more people than Kinshasha. Kinshasha = 13 million people, Khartoum = 5, Kuala Lumpu = 2. Kolkata, India, has 15 million

You can make it "Country with Most Populous Cities Starting by letter K" so that it is less confusing and people can understand you have to name country, and not City.

Yes, but both the title and the description make it clear that you have to name the country and not the city.

You are absolutely correct. However, once you get going on a quiz, you (or maybe I should say, "I") get a bit of tunnel vision and simply answer the question. I was one who was listing cities that begin with "K", and I fully read the title & instructions. I think it's a valid point to simply adjust the question as GeoPhilia suggested. Just my 2 cents. Great quiz, though. Thanks!

The "Country with the most populous city starting with the letter K" question is very confusing and I think it isn't precise, since the way it is currently formulated, any country with the most populous city starting with the letter K makes a correct answer. Do you want the largest country or the most populous country or the country with the most populous city?

"Country with A MORE populous city starting with the letter K" probably would be a more accurate wording. It took me three readings to figure out what you were looking for.

I was a bit confused on the Most populous city starting with a K question. I thought that meant the country’s most populous city started with a K, and I had to name one of those countries. I didn’t realize it meant had a more populous K city. Could you change this (to something like “Countries with a larger city starting with a K than Kinshasa”) to make it less confusing?

I thought all of the answers were African countries and therefore failed miserably.
