Didn't work. I tried to put in a country for a random landmark, but the quiz only accepted an answer for the highlighted landmark.

The Moai is in Chile? Man I kept saying Polynesia which is a sub-region and not a country.

The Moai are on Easter Island, which belongs to Chile.

The quiz asks for the country. That's part of the challenge, knowing what country each of these are associated with!

i think easter island or polynesia should be accepted

It's written "country" which refers here to sovereign states. Eastern Island is not sovereign and Polynesion is divided into several sovereign statesso it makes no sense at all..

It should definitely accept easter island if everyone thinks the same, that's democracy

nope hirsutebodkin, it is a country quiz. You cant just keep bending the rules cause you like to. If everybody votes that you are 12 years old, you are not suddenly 12 years old. That is not how democracy works. The outlines for this quiz are clear (if they werent, then yes, the grey areas would be up for debate)

And you feel no shame for that? :-) Actually, I'm guessing that many people in a slightly earlier generation know about that from Indiana Jones.

Is there a castle on the Cape of Good Hope? I got that one on a guess.

Jun 12, 2015
Yeah, that surprised me too, I'd never heard of it. Wikipedia tells me that it was built in the 17th century and used to be on the coast until land reclamation moved the coast further away. It's an impressive-looking thing.

You are not alone. However in my case, I didn't think North Korea would have any notable landmarks so I tried South Korea instead. When that didn't work I just assumed I was reaching and moved on.

Funny how nobody ever complained about Jordanians invading, occupying, and even annexing this territory (intentionally razing priceless architectural and historical treasures in the process if they belonged to a religious tradition they didn't like). Not one peep of protest or indignation from anyone.
