Fang is listed as the answer for Eritrea, but entering Fang only populates Equitorial Guinea. Also, entering Creole populates two of the three Creole answers, but not Mauritian Creole.

Great quiz. It might be worth extending to include the language most prevalent in each country, even if it is not a majority language.

Interesting - we have to enter the language to get the point, but the answer statistics list everything by country, which we do not get to type!
