Great quiz! You should add it to your series))

Apr 27, 2020
A great challenge. Seeing as you seek to be comprehensive, could I suggest that you need to add "British Indian Ocean Territories" (BIOT should be allowed), which is basically the Chagos Archipelago? Also the Italian islands of Lampedusa, Linosa and Pantellaria, which I believe come under the same division, though I'm not sure what it's called.

The BIOT is Asian and those Italian islands aren't subdivisions.

Congratulations on finishing the last quiz of the First-Level Subdivisions by Continent series IAB. Amazing work, quizzes like these are among my favorites.

Another amazing quiz. My only critique would be that the series seems to have some inconsistencies with the continent. Spanish territories in Africa are on this quiz, not the European one, but Egyptian Governorates in Asia appear on this quiz, not the Asian one (the Sinais). Otherwise, terrific effort. I'm getting steadily worse results (300+ for Asia, 150 or so for Europe and only about 90 on this one), but that's down to me.

Great quiz, amazing effort! I would suggest that some type-ins could be more lenient, e.g. giving all of the related regions when typing in the following: Bujumbura, Nouakchott, Darfur, Sinai. Also Kongo Central when typing in "Central". Thanks!
