yes , you are right Goa and Pondicherry were once colonized by the Portuguese Empire , but in this quiz they are focusing more on the official languages . In this case East Timor(Timor-Leste)is the only asian country to be qualified to be in this list . Macau also speaks a lot of Portuguese but they are considered part of China .

that can't be it because it doesn't count as playing the quiz if you don't type in any answers, so what the stats mean, is that only 99% of people that correctly guess one of the answers gets Portugal.

Or assumes it doesn't need to be included because it's so obvious, or just completely forgets it because it's so obvious (like I have done with the Biggest Spanish Empire Countries, for example, in which it completely slipped my mind that I should include Spain).

I never knew Portuguese was being spoken in Equatorial Guinea, seeing as it used to be a Spanish colony. Apparently Portuguese only became an official language in 2010.

Shouldn't this include China, as part of it (Macau) does have Portuguese as an official language. India doesn't need to be included as far as I can tell because Portuguese is not the official language in Goa.

Always thought Comoros was an old Portuguese colony. I now know it was french. Think that because Portuguese discovered it, just presumed they colonized it. I leave here a wiser man.

I did not know that Equatorial Guinea speaks Portuguese because they were a Spanish colony.
