Which city... is the best in Brazil? A: Belo Horizonte! I think you should remove the type-in “Belo”. It is unnecessary. You should put “BH”, as South-Americans just know the city as BH. I sometimes forgot that I live in Belo Horizonte, saying that I live in BH

Thanks for the comments.

This quiz is from 2018, Curitiba had the highest HDI at the time.

And "Belo" was a standard type-in for Belo Horizonte at the time too.

I might update this quiz later.
