It's more commonly spelled Ulaanbaatar nowadays.

Level 81
Oct 1, 2019
It was always Ulan Bator. I remember it means red something which would seem to mean 2 words. Like all other Asian place names it'll be some other random spelling in a few years so there's no sense in sweating it.

"It was always Ulan Batar". A quick google will easily disprove that, and as for the rest of your comment...

Nov 7, 2019
So my analogy still stands! QM also doesn’t really hate Belgium, he’s just kidding too. Is Pakistan the one country that you hate? If so, that would make me really sad.

There cultural and geographical reasons for both, but the jetpunk convention is that they are in Asia.

"less than 15 cm precipitation" doesn't really mean anything. I suppose it should be "an average of less than 15 cm/ m2"
+3
Level 71
Oct 5, 2019
On the contrary, precipitation is often measured by depth without explicit reference to area, such as in this article:

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Earth_rainfall_climatology&ved=2ahUKEwjanfia-oTlAhVDQUEAHfXxCtQQFjASegQIBhAB&usg=AOvVaw1Z7rhjxCNWGvQ-xLdgcn2s

The quiz is quite correct.

+1
Level 64
Nov 6, 2019
Must add that it is most common to use mm (that is liters per square meter) rather than cm for precipitation measuring.

Isn't Bhutan an absolute monarchy?
+5
Level 39
Nov 6, 2019
It is technically a monarchy but the King of Bhutan has passed a law that he can be removed by the country's parliament if they find him unworthy. Hence, it's not an 'absolute' monarchy.
+2
Level 21
Nov 6, 2019
Well, Jordan has no such law, and It's not accepted, despite there being a king who can overrule everyone else and do what he wants.

+1
Level 72
Nov 7, 2019
It’s fine as it is, but you could change it to “a country that contains (but does not start with) the letter y” in order to avoid directly calling out Yemen.

One of the clues is strangely worded... "Name an Asian country... which the Mekong river flows through". Maybe go with "through which the Mekong flows"? (Boy, am I really that guy? :) )

Yup, Bosporus Strait (Istanbul) is Europe-Asia border, not many people live in European part and Turkey originated in Asia and their capital is in Asia.

The quiz instructions should be "Name any Asian country that belongs in each selected category." Or, "Name any country in Asia that belongs in each selected category."

Not sure what Jetpunk convention is these days, but a note that Tel Aviv (two words) isn't considered the capital of Israel might be nice.

Level 55
Jun 3, 2020
Well, why should there be a note saying that city that is not a capital is not considered to be a capital? Seems a little redundant to me.

Not really fan of the NATO and equator questions. This type of quiz implies, that there should be more than one correct answer, so having question with only one seems off to me.

As it happens, I'm not really a fan of NATO.
