Struggled the most with tze/on, figured that would be the least guessed.

Also figured that, I missed errey/real, atoa/ow, tze/on, ine/one. But I thought of the answer to tze/on, but didn't think it was correct so I didn't try it..

Same beginning letters rather than same prefixes.

Great idea for a quiz and great quiz.

Cool part of this quiz is that most prefixes are not coincidentally the same, even if several times removed.

E.g.: "Phil" is in both cases from Greek meaning friend/lover, although one time it comes from a given name (Philip, "horse lover") and the other time it comes deliberately from Greek (in the sense of "city of brotherly love").

Also missed ine/one, despite being from the two countries those are in! I see only 11% got that one - it's a great question!

I think it was least guessed because ine/one are not "places".

Certainly threw me.
