no, the Algerian movement against the reelection of Bouteflika is not part of the Arab Spring. and the Sudan events aren't either.

If you're counting Algeria and Sudan, then that's one very long Spring.

In some questions, you use incorrect verb tenses; change higher to highest, more to most, etc.

In your comment, you use incorrect grammatical terms. "Higher" and "more" are not verbs.

But your point remains valid.

I managed 100% but a couple of these could be tricky for some. I'm guessing a lot of people probably guessed Egypt for the country with the most Muslims question, and I wouldn't have known the Africa Union HQ was in Addis Ababa if I hadn't walked past it once.

Are there people that dont know about the dodo?? Shocked at how low the score was. I know not everyone's knowledge base is the same, but some things you expect to be rather universal. Like a picture of the eiffeltower, would be weird if it only scored 20%. And to me dodo is as synonymous with Mauritius as eiffeltower is with Paris. Even moreso actually, with dodo and Mauritius I cant think of one without thinking of the other. While with paris I can

Yes, the story of the dodo itself is far more famous than the relatively insignificant nation of Mauritius
