Maybe change the description to say ocean or add a caveat excluding the Caspian Sea, I know the Caspian Sea isn't actually a sea but it is called one.

I would not have thought to include Baku or anything else on the Caspian sea either. I am just surprised Kuala Lumpur is so far from the sea. Cool quiz!

Agree entirely with this. If the description had said ocean rather than sea, I wouldn't have spent so much time wondering why Baku wasn't a correct answer.

Well, every Sri Lankan friend I had replies that the capital of Sri Lanka is Colombo (I live in India so I see a lot of them) yet apparently jetpunk decides to keep such a name to 'amuse' and make everyone's lives worse?

In practically every other quiz on this page Cyprus is considered Asia, why not for this one?

I don't know why do Jetpunk favors Sri Jayawardenepura kotte over Colombo for the capital of Sri lanka. Sure, Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte is the presidential and executive capital, but every single Sri Lankans I know replies that Colombo is their capital. Plus, if we're supposed to write the exact executive capital for every single case, we should be writing Putrajaya for Malaysian capital instead of Kuala Lumpur and Den Haag instead of Amsterdam for Netherlands. I just don't get the logic here... perhaps have some sort of continuity I guess?

Colombo is the de facto economic and legislative capitol of Sri Lanka. It should be accepted as an answer instead of just Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte. SJK is an inland neighborhood of the Colombo metropolitan area.

A lot of comments here say that Colombo is the capital of Sri Lanka, and I agree. However, if Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte is considered the capital of Sri Lanka, it should not be included in this list, as it does not border the sea (it is blocked by Colombo).

Wondering about Bangkok. I mean sure the city is close to the sea but it's city center is about 20-25km away which means it's not within the 10 km radius. Oh and the same goes for Taipei as well. The city center is about 20km from the sea (btw. I used Google Earth to figure that out so maybe I'm not 100% correct but I'm not that far off either).
