Good Quiz, but a few suggestions-

1.You should probably replace the Chattrapati Shivaji Mahraj Question- as there are many landmarks in Mumbai Named after him.

2. Maybe rephrase the antilla question, and ask whom does it belong to (Mukesh Ambani, Asia's Richest man)

3. Add congress and INC as typeins

4. Maybe Add A question on Sachin Tendulkar/ Cricket ?

Sorry For such a long comment :rofl:!
