Awesome quiz! Can you accept CDMX for Mexico City? It's a common abbreviation

Level 74

CDMX is an abbreviation for Mexico City. The answer in this quiz is the State of Mexico, which does not contain Mexico City.

Acceptable type-ins should perhaps include Estado de Mexico and Edomex?

Since it's just a transliteration, please accept "Baluchistan" instead of only accepting "Balochistan" (it's the same letter in Urdu/Arabic alphabet).

North-Rhine Westphalia is very often shortened to NRW. That would be a relieving type-in.

I really enjoyed this quiz. Well done on getting featured. I just think that 12 minutes is a bit short. Luckily I am a student of India (Asian studies), so I got many of them, but it's still tough with so little time.

Thanks

Amazing quiz as always but can I know the source of the population for the Indian States?

Because Wiki and Citypopulation states the population of WB is 91 million while some other sources says it's 99 million. Where did you got the 103 million from?

I used a 2021 population projection using the 2001 and 2011 census. It's not 100% accurate but it was the best that I could have gotten rather than using a 9 year outdated data.

Great, but could you loosen the spelling? I tried "Rio Grande del Sud" and did not get points for Brazil. Granted, I did not have it totally correct, but I would expect "Rio Grande" to be a sufficient type-in; usually quizzes try to minimize how much you need to type in other languages.

it is cause there are multiple states of brazil that start with "rio grande do"

For the Philippines, could you accept Region 3 / Region III for Central Luzon, and Region 4-A / IV-A for Southern Tagalog Mainland? By the way, Calabarzon should be written there cause "Southern Tagalog Mainland" is obsolete. Nobody uses it here.

Great quiz! There was one odd thing though, "Uttar" was not accepted, but "Uttarp" was. :/

That is because of the state of Uttarakhand

If "Madhya" and "Andhra" are accepted, then "Uttar" should be accepted.

Except that Madhya and Andhra are proper nouns, whereas Uttar is not. Uttar P is not such a difficult thing to remember.

What do you mean? Madhya means central and Uttar means north(ern).

Any chance the spelling could be loosened on Khyber Pakhtunkhwa? Especially considering the latter means Pashtun

No, they read it as all 10 million+ of the first-level subdivisions, rather than all of the first-level subdivisions of 10 million+(people).

No idea if this counts but technically Taiwan has two provinces - Taiwan and Fujian - although they serve no purpose at this point, sort of like the Länder of the DDR.

Shouldn't be the Netherlands be in here as well? In most quizzes, the Netherlands is classified as one single First-Level Subdivision.
+2
Level 69
Jul 12, 2022
And now they are.

More accurately, the part of the Netherlands that is in Europe is a single first-level subdivision, confusing also called the Netherlands (although they do technically call the whole country The Kingdom of the Netherlands but shockingly that just gets abbreviated right back down to Netherlands).
