Italy was a Central Powers member for an entire year stemming from the beginning of the war.

I wondered about this as well. Wikipedia says:

"Despite having nominally joined the Triple Alliance before, Italy did not take part in World War I on the side of the Central Powers"

Any counterarguments?

Italy is correct! Do not believe everything You find on the Wikipedia! The fact is, Italy belonged to the central powers untill they changed the side.

@bogumilowy Actually, Wikipedia is a good source. It's a myth (and a far too common one) that people go around changing stuff for the hell of it. I think you need to re-read cornflakesfu's comment. The article agrees with you that Italy was a Central Power, it just didn't engage in real warfare. You're right that the quiz is a little messed up, as it should say, "Countries that fought for the Central Powers", not "one of the Central Powers".

Love it. Not enough humility on this site (I hate those posts that go "All right and in 0.23 seconds" Bratish!) but this I like Shade. Hats off to you. Good quiz, thanks Wolfy

Germany is more populous but France is much larger, even if you exclude her overseas departments and territories.

Always confuse Pantheon with Parthenon....

precisely !! I was about to type that. (and then look it up trying to see if there is some way, some details that will fix it in the right place in my mind.)

I think I have a way to memorize now. Parthenon is in athena/for athens. and -arthen- sounds/looks more like athens than -anthe- (both words without the p).

(Plus pantheon is for all (pan) the gods (theon) and parthenon (virgin) is for athena)

Wrongly associated Austria to "Austral" and "southern". Accidental guess 😉

Funnily, both Australia and Austria derive their names from a cardinal direction - but not from the same one. "Australis" (latin) means "southern", while the "aust" from "Austria" ist the same word as "east".

Surpised the Summer Olympics question success rate was so low. Makes me wonder if the majority went for Portugal because its the only "summer" country.

I got this catastrophically wrong by picking Serbia. For some reason I thought Sarajevo 1984 was a summer olympics rather than a Winter Olympics. My second big error was forgetting that Sarajevo is in Bosnia and not Serbia 🤦‍♀️ Didn’t even think of the Portugal summer ‘logic’!

I beat or equaled 17.5% of test takers. It's rare that the number is below 60%. Especially on a European country quiz.
