OK, I got 100 percent within 2 minutes, which I should since I'm taking this from Kathmandu. However, I wasted a lot of time with alternates. For instance, only "Mount Everest" is an option for highest mountain - although it's also known as Sagarmatha, Chomolungma, and just plain Everest (all of which I tried before I thought, "oh, maybe the test-maker needed people to write "Mount.") I also spent a lot of time trying to find alternate ways to spell dal bhat before I decided maybe the test-maker only thought of "rice." And since when was cricket the most popular sport in Nepal cricket? Since 2005 or something? I guessed it, but seriously, what about kabadi (traditional) and football (soccer)? Hardly anyone here played cricket until recently. Nice to see a Nepal quiz here, but this could use some revising ...

Only accepting 'China india' for the two bordering countries is ludicrous. I tried China and India, India and China, to no avail. Seems kind of silly

Given that it is a quiz about Nepal, the Nepalese name for Everest, Sagarmatha should be acceptable? Dal Bhat should be the daily food. Surprised also the ísm' has to be added to Hindu, was confused for a few seconds.
