I read the title. And then promptly forgot that all of the answers had to be 4-letters long before I finished reading the first question.

I was about to write the same thing. Xi'an is a well known Chinese city. I wonder why it is not here...

It was used on Quiz #1 (this is quiz #2) so presumably it was to avoid duplication.

Good idea - I was surprised there was no X. Plenty of 4-letter words. And *anything* can be defended as being human geography...

Quad is the outlier here. It's too vague. Everything else is a proper noun. Maybe if it referred to a specific quad it would belong better.

Switzerland doesn't have a capital.

Yet the government is seated there, so while it has no official capital, it certainly does have a de facto one.

But a de facto capital is still not a capital.

The Roma are a nomadic people who left Iran ages ago and their descendants live in Europe and Asia. Sadly they were a main target of the Nazis and many were killed.

I couldn't remember the most common name in China but then I noticed that that question was the 'W' question and instantly I thought of Wang :D
