Quizmaster, the suffix is abad for Islamabad and Hyderabad. It is not just "Bad". Please see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/-abad

I totally back @MCMLXXXII. The suffix for Islamabad and Hyderabad is "-abad" and not "-bad". The word "abad" literally means "populated" and when used as a suffix, it means "city of". So Islamabad is "city of Islam" and Hyderabad is "city of the lion". Now, keeping that context in mind, it seems pretty lazy, foolish and kind of offensive to someone like me. I request you to please change this. Thank you.

Why is it offensive? He just made a mistake, he wasn't trying to be lazy or foolish. Why don't you correct people more politely next time, especially when others have already corrected them.

jafe, MCMLXXII and Eigengrau are all correct here. The suffix abad refers to "city". I know bad sounds funny here, but it's offensive to the people of south east asia. I would request you to change it, it's not much work.

Yep, one star off for the "just play" comment instead of correcting it.

Nice quiz, but I'd expect a higher standard for featured ones.

Inventive. Are those all suffixes though? That two words end the same way doesn't make the sequence of letters a suffix.

Well, bia, mania, ago, bique, lin and anda probably aren't, or at least they don't mean the same in both cases. Vania should be sylvania.

-mania and -bia should be -ia ("of, pertaining to"). It can be for ethnic group (Croatia, Slovakia), people (Georgia, the state), features (Nigeria), or location (Australia).

For a small, two-letter suffix, it surely has a broad usage.

Good idea! Just two notes, it is not really playable on tablet, because as soon as you have entered an answer the screen jumps out of view. It does this after every answer so every time you have to scroll back up again, which is extremely annoying and frustrating. (I finished the quiz, but if it would have been longer I wouldnt have).

plus I dont see why the yellow box is necessary, there is no way you can accidentally fill in other answers.

I agree - not sure why this is a "yellow box" quiz. Would suggest that the difficulty be increased by reducing the time allotment.

I'm sorry but most of the answers are not suffixes. The "lin" in Berlin/Sakhalin, the "bia" in Zambia/Serbia, the "que" in Martinique/Mozambique, the "ago" in Santiago/Tobago are not suffixes, just combinations of letters!

"Vania" may be a suffix but not in the two examples reported, where the actual suffix is "sylvania" - from Latin "silvis, silvis" - meaning "woodland".

"Mania" in Tasmania and Romania is not the suffix, which should be "-ia", meaning "land of (what precedes)": Romania is "land of the Romans", Tasmania is "land of Tasman".

Very disappointing quiz to be honest.

I bandwagon with the suffix thing. Some of those aren't suffixes. It's just a matter of precision, but you should call these "same ending" or something like that. In some cases they are actual suffixes, but the affix isn't the answer (e.g. -mania for -ia)

Great quiz! However for the case of Hyderabad and Islamabad the "abad" is actually the shared part which means "cultivated place"

Good fun!

The one with "ton" can also be "borough"... I suppose I'm only aware of that though because Kingsborough is quite close to me. It's tiny as well. If you wanted to make a type-in though it would be correct..?
