India and China are not in Africa.

In each group, you need to find a valid answer to the current category and every category above it within that group.

In your case you were looking for "Countries in Africa ending in A with a population over 20 million".

I'm going to go for one of Mal's Golden Nitpick Awards - "with fewer than 10 million people" and similarly "with a Capital City of 7 letters or fewer"

Good quiz though

Apr 9, 2019
Fixed! Less vs Fewer is always a tricky one to get correct. (Waiting approval)

(In the case of 'people', both are valid options.)

Shouldn't Bhutan (Thimpu) work up to the capital-with-exactly-six-letters line? Bhutan is one word; in Asia; fewer than 10 million; Thimpu has six letters. (I can imagine, by the way, how easy it would be to omit a possible answer when making this quiz.)

@roleybob, I wanted to make the quiz as accurate as possible! Generally my grammar is pretty darn good, but sometimes little things trip me up. I felt it was necessary to fix it in this case. (although as Sean said, in the case of people both are valid, so it wasn't necessary to change both)
+1

I'd always been taught that if it's quantifiable use fewer, if it's not use less, therefore fewer people, not less people.

Could be wrong though

Apr 9, 2019
With an average of 15/20, and 7.9% of people getting 100%, I think the time is okay for now. You can see from the stats that there's a nice bell curve, leaning towards the top, meaning that the time is nicely placed.

Awesome idea! Maybe another 60-90 seconds would make it a tad easier. The way it is, I left the most specific answer in each category for the end so I don't waste time during the quiz, but I didn't have time to go back to them.

It's the same with Czechia I believe. :x
+1
level 62
May 26, 2019
Czechia is not included in that since we use Czech Republic as the JetPunk name, despite its official short name being Czechia.

However if we don't use a standard (in this case the Countries of the World quiz) then there's a debate for many other countries as to what should and shouldn't count.

Libreville is also the capital of Gabon. That means there are two countries for Africa capitals. Luanda & Libreville.

It must satisfy all categories above it. Since Gabon does not end with an "A" then it would not count.

Great quiz. Tricky too. But, the capital of Luxembourg is Luxembourg City. That, obviously ends in a "Y". Maybe add a line in the intro saying you don't count the 'city' bit. Great quiz otherwise

We use the names as featured in the JetPunk World Capitals quiz, there it is presented as "Luxembourg" and so is done as such here. (For comparison, Mexico and Panama both include "city" in their answer to that quiz)

Vatican City doesn’t work for the second to last clue for the last category

It must satisfy every clue before it in that category. Since Vatican City doesn't start with a letter between A and L, it is invalid.

Vatican was not accepted in the 3rd question of the yellow part. I think it should.

On JetPunk, "Vatican" is considered to be "Vatican City" and thus is not counted as a one-word country.

+1
level 62
May 24, 2019
Thanks! Sadly, there would be no way for me to implement this. Although, if you don't get any of the last categories you only end up with 3 points thanks to the way points work on JetPunk. So I guess you could argue that the last answers are worth 2 points :)
