I didn't guess Russia because I got all of the Asian countries. Russia! you fickle red fish! You switch between Europe and Asia as it suits your own needs.

Actually, we've counted the Russian split of the Ural Mountains to divide Russia and form a marking of population between the continental sides. Since China is outrageously over-populated, beside many other Asian countries, as opposed to Europe, the country would be included on the top row, second-to-right, and not the bottom westernmost section of the quiz. Surprisingly, Bangladesh is more populated than Russia!

Got them all with over a minute to spare. The only hard part was Oceania. I got the first 3 pretty quick and after that it was just a matter of typing in all of the countries until I got the last two. Thankfully there aren't too many countries in Oceania.

How can you make a Quiz, where you have more Rows of Blocks? Everytime i I set Blocks they arrange in one Row of Blocks

You can add a block with the button on the right by going to Manual Mode in Step 3.

I know, but they always arrange to the Right, and don't create a second row of Blocks instead

Cuba should be fifth in North America category. Cuba has a population of about 11.5 million people, while Haiti has some 10 million people.

Strange not to see Japan in a quiz about most populated countries. But the competition in Asia is really tough
+1
level 52
Apr 10, 2019
Cuba has more people than Haiti. Cuba has 11.48 million people, Haiti has 10.98. Given that Haiti's growth has been steady, whereas Cuba's is relatively flat, this fact would have also been true at the time the test was created. I suggest changing NA's rankings to put Cuba last, not Haiti.
+1
level ∞
Apr 10, 2019
Looks like you're right. Wikipedia used to say that Haiti was more populated. I have a feeling that Haiti's government statistics are non-existent or incomplete, so there's probably a large range of estimates.
+1
level ∞
Apr 10, 2019
Also, we no longer use Wikipedia for country populations since worldometers seems to be more consistent.
+1
level 76
Apr 11, 2019
Worldometer (like the others) shows no blip in the population for Haiti in 2010, even though 100,000 to 200,000 Haitians were supposed to have died in the earthquake that year.
+1
level ∞
Apr 11, 2019
I would agree there should be a blip, but not as big as you might think. The best estimate for the death toll is that 92,000 died. Worldometers is based on UN data and estimates, so maybe e-mail your UN ambassador? :)
+1
level 76
Apr 11, 2019
@Quizmaster Look at http://www.worldometers.info/world-population/haiti-population/ where there's not only a population graph but a population growth rate graph. 92000 is 0.8% of 11 million. The graph show a growth rate of about 1.6% in 2009, which means the graph should nosedive to about half that in 2010, but nothing like that is shown. Either someone's lying about the effects of the earthquake or someone is incompetent at processing data.
