Just a bit picky, but 11 months have 30 days, with some of those having 31........ I think 'Only 30 days' would be better.

According to Malbabys logic, "one" and "two" would be valid answers to question five. After all, South Africa does have two capital cities (and a third one too).

Not quite. They are different logical operands. "How many" asks for a specific answer whereas what Malbaby is saying is that the question "how many months have 30 days" is a statement logically fulfilled with the answer 11; 11 months do, in fact, have 30 days. But come on.

That one reminded me of a common trick question. "exactly 30 days" might clear it up but 92% got it right and when the highest answer is 4 it's kind of obvious.

If we're going to nitpick I'd go with "exactly" 30 days. "Only" 30 days is weird because February has 28

For the mammals question, species would be better than "types".
+5
Level 71
Jun 15, 2019
If it were species the answer would have to be 5. There is a genus which only contains the species of platypus, but there is a genus for the short-beaked echidna and a genus for three species of long-beaked echidna. So the question needs to be more more exact. What is meant by "type of mammal"? Taxonomically the answer is only 2 if you talk about families.

The question is written as intended. I wrestled with the wording a bit but I think simpler is better. Anyone who knows their monotremes should be able to guess it correctly since 5 is not a valid choice.

Actually "types" is too vague. I answered 1, because only monotremes do lay eggs, and I was really in doubt whether to put 1 or 2.

I agree with giommaso - because of the word 'types', I interpreted that as 'monotremes' being the type. I feel as though we Aussies, in particular, are always going to fight this one since we're brought up learning about our native fauna. I'd suggest species, as well.

My bad, I didn't know there were four species of Echidna. After checking this time, I propose "families" (no, I really don't like that "types" :p).

I thought there should be a better wording of this too. I thought the answer would be one, since monotremes are a type of animal (an order), and platypuses and echidnas are families within the order monotreme. As such, the answer could be either 1 or 2 (or 5, if going by species).

Added "families" to the question so there can be no doubt.

Regarding question 13, 'type' is ambiguous. I assumed you meant order, as in Monotreme. To avoid confusion the word 'species' should be used instead of 'type'.

For those that were wondering, four (sì) is considered unlucky because it is a homophone for death (sǐ). On the other hand, six (liù) is lucky because it sounds like everything going smoothly (liū), with eight (bā) being extremely lucky because it vaguely sounds like making a fortune (fā).

As a history nerd, I’m super sad that I mixed up my crusades. I remembered that the Fourth one was a colossal failure, but I thought that only Antioch was captured during the first one, with Jerusalem falling during the second. Those two are probably switched.

Not saying that the question needs changing but just out of interest, I've heard Christopher Hitchens say that North Korea has only had 1 official leader - Kim Il-Sung - who was named as supreme leader for eternity, with subsequent "leaders" merely taking care of the admin since his death.

I think the phrase he coined for it was a necrocracy

A pedant's detail: negative factors (or divisors) also exist, so 2 and 3 have four divisors in total (-2,-1,1,2 and similar for 3), which is more than two.
