The way the Great Leap Forward question is worded, I first thought the answer was China, before getting Mao Zedong. Both answer's are technically correct, but only Mao is accepted.

A language doesn't have letters. An alphabet does. So khmer language might have more consonants or vowels than any other language, but for sure it doesn't have more letters. I know I'm nit-picking a bit, but I was completely mislead by the question.
