Hey...it looks like you got confused between Carrier Vessels (CVs) and ships like Landing Helicopter Docks (LHDs). I know the designations might vary across the nations but the basic roles remain the same. For example, you have stated that France has 4 carriers, which obviously includes 3 Mistral-class LHDs in addition to the lone Charles De Gaulle-class nuclear flattop, which is the only true CV in French Navy. But you have stated that US has only 10 carriers, which means only the Nimitz-class are taken into account? Why were the Wasp-class LHDs left out because for other countries you are obviously including CVs and LHDs as carriers? I think the criteria here is wrong - just saying. If we include only true CVs as aircraft carriers we'll only have : US with 10 (or 11), India & Italy with 2 each, and the rest (China, France, Russia, Thailand and Brazil) with one CV per country.

I have found the list it seems : http://www.globalfirepower.com/navy-aircraft-carriers.asp - As I expected, they are including Carrier Vessels (CVs) as well as Landing Helicopter Docks (LHDs) as "carriers". While they're not wrong in a sense - both ship types are still designed to carry aircraft, the link updated on 17 Feb 2015 lists the US with 20 carriers while you have put 10. If you correct that one number, the quiz will atleast be true to what GFP considers as "carriers". Although in it's truest sense, LHDs are not regarded as CVs. If you want to correct up that bit as well, you may add this info to the quiz description - that this quiz includes CVs and LHDs, just so that people don't finish this quiz and go home with the wrong pretense that LHDs are included as aircraft carriers by the Navy.
