This is an amazing quiz, I really hope you'll make more of these quizzes for other countries. That being said, some of these inventions are either unclear or plain not true, even if they are listed under the Wikipedia page for "List of Spanish inventions and discoveries", which is what I presume you used to source this quiz. To make an example, eyeglasses are listed in the article, but even just going to the Wikipedia page for eyeglasses, History section, would tell you that there's evidence for some kind of visual aid being used by emperor Nero, while the first eyeglasses were made in northern Italy some time around 1290.

I might sound pedantic, but I really like this quiz idea and would love it even more if everything in this quiz was accurate.

By the way, I hope I don't sound rude, but some of the hints also kind of need rewriting in my opinion, like the one for cigarette or toxicology

Toxicology is the study of toxins and poisons, not the understanding of many disciplines. Do you mean "polymathism"?

Yep. At time of writing there's 0% for Toxicology, because there's no obvious, or even non-obvious way to get from the clue to the answer (nor any obvious connection to Spain). At least with some of the other odd clues it's possible to see the answer, and think "Oh, that's what they meant!", but not this one - it just looks like the wrong clue got put with the wrong answer.
