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?
