Serbian and Croatian are as different as US English and UK English. Put a native speaker of each in a room together and they would understand each other with minimal problems. Same language.

Maybe adding Sorbian and/or Rusyn and/or Kashubian would be a nice idea? Quizzes here are not only all about points, but we can also learn something new. Maybe some people fter taking the quiz would read a little bit about Sorbs, Rusyns and Kashubs and find it interesting? Anyway, Slava! :)

Nice quiz. But technically, the absence of languages like Rusyn, Kashubian and Upper and Lower Sorbian makes the quiz incorrect, because these are very much Slavic, and are very much "in the world". They may not be as "commonly spoken" as the ones you've listed, but then that raises the question of how common is common enough. If you wish to avoid adding those languages, I suggest you set a more specific criterion for inclusion. For example, you could specify that only languages with 1,000,000+ speakers qualify, or that only official or national languages of countries qualify. Indeed, some debate exists about whether the said languages are actually languages or dialects, but for that matter, the same applies for the varieties of Serbo-Croatian and for Macedonian too.

Don't the Baltic states count as Slavic. Historically, old Baltic mythology is classified as Slavic paganism and I have always heard of Latvian and Lithuanian being Slavic languages.

The Baltic languages are related to the Slavic languages. Together, they form the Balto-Slavic branch of the Indo-European language family. But since this quiz is about Slavic languages, they are not included.

Serbian and Croatian are two languages, not just one. The grammar is different, vocabulary is around 30 % completely different. Some may say that they sound similar, but also we can say for danish, norwegian and swedish.

Zapravo se svi Slaveni mogu razumjeti iako s poteškoćama i dalje se razumiju mislim ako svoj jezik pričaš polako. To što se Hrvati i Srbi razumiju ne znači da je to isti jezik. Hrvatski je puno drugačiji od srpskog. Gramatika je puno drugačija i mnoge su riječi drugačije. Ne postoji nikakav srpsko-hrvatski.

To što je želja hrvatskih političkih i kulturnih elita da izgrade nacionalnu svest Hrvata na osnovama koje se temelje na nečemu što različitijem od srpskog ne znači da to ima ikakve veze sa stvarnošću. Ovaj tekst je napisan na srpskom jeziku, sa rečima istim kao u takozvanom hrvatskom i gramatikom istom kao i u tvom maternjem jeziku, srpskom.

Ljudevit Gaj ''Danica'' 1846 godine- Sav svijet zna i priznaje da smo mi književnost ilirsku podigli; nu nama još iz daleka nije na um palo ikada potvrditi da to nije srpski već ilirski jezik; pa se ponosimo i hvalimo Bogu velikom što mi Hrvati s braćom Srbljima sada jedan književni jezik imamo.

Ljudevit Gaj - Kako da se prepiremo što je kod Srbljah narodno, što li nije, kod Srbljah, u kojih od oltara do čobana ništa biti ne može što ne bi narodno bilo: kod Srbljah, od kojih mi jezik u svojoj mudrosti i u svom bogatstvu, i običaje u svojoj izvrsnosti i svojoj čistoći učiti moramo ako hoćemo da ilirski život obnovimo.

Ti si rekao ,, da izgrade nacionalnu svest Hrvata'' znači ti želiš reći da Hrvati ne smiju biti narodno osviješteni da znaju da su drugačiji od drugih? Što znači da ti misliš da Hrvati nisu narod nego da su Srbi ili što?

Srpsko-hrvatski je bio korišten u Jugoslaviji, ali ne koristi se danas. A i to su htjeli da postoji, ali zapravo ne bih rekao da je postojao. Wikipiedija nije baš najpouzdaniji izvor informacija.
