I think this one had a nice difficulty level, though there are some pretty sudden drops in the stats. 'Who is the patron ...' and 'And which two explorers ...' were pretty hard, but I was able to remember them.

Or the City of Death from Doctor Who!

(A humorous name in French, where Cité de l’Amour sounds very like Cité de la Mort! 🤣)

Maybe it is the city of death, to those who have seen the Catacombs!

The two explorers question has a tricky level of difficulty. For me, a non US, it was surely the most difficult one. But I would be able to get all the others (except the last one) if I could see the questions.

And small rant here: It's really pretty hard to deal with the US-centered view on English Jetpunk page, either you focus on them (the biggest public) or you try something more general (which would get less takes and more comments of "how would we know this! this is very difficult!"). I like the second option better, because I'm in the group who doesn't know a lot about US but know something of the whole world. Not complaining tbh, just ranting.

Fair enough. I didn't realize Lewis and Clark were so unknown. I might rearrange the order of the questions then. And if it's any consolation, I'm not American either, but I added US answers to cater for the wider public of American's on JetPunk, and go along with the general theme of the site. Thanks again!

Edit: I've changed the question to a non-American one. Not sure whether that makes it better or not. I'll wait for some feedback perhaps.

You should really add some options for Lewis and Clark such as Clark and Lewis, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, etc.

Oh, whoops. That was quite silly of me, sorry.

Edit: I've changed that question now.

Tokelau is not 'in' New Zealand, as in the country of New Zealand. It is a colony of New Zealand. Though it is officially part of the 'realm' of New Zealand.

I would move 'What strait ...' back. You can see a drop from 48% to 36% and bodies of water are typically less known if they aren't oceans or seas. The P in Purchase should be capitalized. I would swap 'What is the biggest city ...' and 'Of which colonial empire ...' Keep it up!

I've reordered the answers now to hopefully improve the quiz, thanks :)
