My pet peeve, it's Ayers Rock, not Ayer's. Not even Quizmaster gets that right. Nevertheless it was a very entertaining quiz.

The question what state has the lowest population density cam straight after an Australian state question. Could be clearer - unless we are supposed to assume by default that questions are about the USA.

Maybe I had bad luck but 8/20 questions about the US, one of them asking about the state flower of Kansas.

The quiz idea is amazing, but really... state flowers??

To be fair, Kansas does have the most iconic state flower, being the Sunflower State and all.

I have removed a few of the more US-centric questions, however remember that with many people taking this quiz, it is likely that a few people will end up with lots of questions from one particular area. It's how randomness works!

True. I had five US-related questions in a row, which got me thinking I must have missed the US geography quiz part in the title.

"What is a three-letter word for a professor from that university?" doesn't make sense in a randomised quiz

Is it really necessary to have highlighted boxes in this quiz? No other general knowledge quiz - or "random" quiz - has that. It's not like you can type a random answer and it magically appears somewhere, like in other quizzes.

Some random quizzes do feature it, but in this case I think you’re right, it’s not needed. I have requested for it to be turned off. (Awaiting approval)

Fun quiz. Thanks Stewart! QM, the percentages don't seem to be showing up on this one.

Since 20 questions are randomly chosen, there's no point in showing percentages since everybody gets a different set of questions. This is the case with all randomised quizzes.

The advantage is that you can refresh the page and play the same quiz, with a whole new experience!

You can also still go to the stats page after finishing the quiz (or appending "/stats" to the end of the URL to see how many questions people get right.

have you thought of making a quiz with all 400 or so questions? probably would take too much time.

Most of these are derived from various featured quizzes. The idea is to not overwhelm the player with 100s of questions, but rather a random selection each time!

when it comes to northernmost city in the US, please define city, as in over 1000 people or something...

Anyway, Barrow, Alaska doesn't exist anymore. They changed their name to Utqiagvik.

So I got a question asking the english name for Kobenhavn (imagine a dash across that O), and then right below that a question asking which swedish city is across the bridge from Copenhagen. One kind of spoiled the other. I don't know if this is fixable, but I just wanted to give you a "heads up"

Why do we have to questions that have the same answer? Bengal is both a tiger and a bay, so if you guess one you get both questions right. We should only have one of those

"What is usually considered to be the northernmost city in the United States?" I'm curious why you worded it this way. Why not just "What IS the northernmost city in the United States?"

I really don't think, referring to the answer to second most spoken language in the UK, that Scots really has more speakers than Welsh- that's not to say I think even Welsh is the second most spoken language in the UK, but maybe just Polish?
