Bit more leeway on the spelling of the smaller of the 230 answer would b nice. Unless I typo-ed, I spelt it how I always do and, unlike other quizzes on here, it wasn't accepted.

It has its default typein, so all usual spellings should work just fine.

I'm almost sure there should be Nepal in place of Mongolia

This is population not area. China has 48x Nepal's population. Mongolia is very large in area but very small in population. (In fact Mongolia is the least dense country on Earth!)

I have resubmitted with the change from "Small" to "Smaller" in the title, this should make it clear that Population is still the only factor being considered here, as clearly stated in the description.

Awesome quiz idea. I must be honest, I was thinking about size when taking it aswell. Smaller countries still refers to size. Less populous would be better.

Though it say clearly in the description :) But I usually only read them when I foresee controverse, or dont understand the title fully.

Stewart, you are a bastion of great quiz ideas! I love this one. But I could use a wee bit more time. I don't like when a good, thinking quiz like this makes me run out of time before I run out of easy answers.

Malaysia and Singapore?

About 32 million and 6 million, not a very big multiplier at all. Singapore is surprisingly populous for its size and Malaysia has fewer people than it seems.
