Why do people seem to think using Google doesn't constitute cheating? If anything, Google is the mechanism by which you COMPLETELY cheat. If you come up with an answer in any other way, you're still cheating less than if you use Google. Half-baked hacks.

Here's what ya do: Go to Google and start to type in "What's the difference between [insert question here] and {quiz answer}. For example: "What's the difference between Nordic and..." Works like a charm.

Well I don't think googling such things always means "I didn't know there was a difference", it could be also "HOW different are A and B".

it's obviously refering to languages. Of course you know everything about those, but to the rest of us less fortunate westeners, they seem pretty similar.

I thought it would be Persia. But the actual result isn't completely absurd. They used to be in the same empire, they sound alike, they're right next to each other.

Ignorant yes. Racist no. If you don't know the difference, it's probably best to Google it and find out instead of remaining ignorant.

Pausing a quiz at anytime to consult Google or any other reference site is CHEATING. Consulting it after you have completed the quiz to check the accuracy of a "nitpick" you wish to insert is not cheating.

I think that Castilian should be accepted for Spanish. Considering that Catalan is what the quiz taker sees, I think it's more likely for them to make a distinction between different types of Spanish as opposed to just thinking of Spanish. Everyone I took the quiz with said Castilian and not Spanish.

I'm not sure if I've misunderstood your comment, but are you implying that catalan is a type of spanish?
