Hello to anybody who reads this,

I just updated this quiz again, who knew so much would change? Macedonia became North Macedonia, I changed the wording on the Yugoslavia question, and I changed the question that first read 'countries with 100 million to 200 million people' to 'countries in Asia with more than 100 million people' to still fit eight countries in there, even though I'll have to change it again probably next year when Vietnam crosses 100 million. Yikes.

No, it shouldn't. Because of the 'Countries with 'and' in their names'.

What about "United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland"? It has an "and" in there.

Get ready for the Philippines having over 100 million inhabitants, some say they already do.

It's a good and creative quiz anyway.

on the "and" ones please accept the first half of the name. (sao tome, st kitts, st Vincent, bosnia, etc.)

For the inhabitants question it you wrote "100,000,000 to 300,000,000 million", you don't need the 'million' afterwards, it confused me for a second :D

Errors: (1) Countries that formed Yugoslavia? Maybe "Countries formed from Yugoslavia" (2) Only two countries (and two continents) have between 1,000,000 million and 3,000,000 million (I assume you mean "Countries with 100 million - 300 million inhabitants"). (4) After making the previous correction, you would also need to add the Philippines, it having 102,632,700, as of today. (5) ...which would mean you'd have to change the whole question and answer area completely ... yikes! (6) Where's France on here? France has a real border with Brazil and Suriname. [France is to French Guiana as the US is to Alaska] therefore the USA has an official border with Yukon just as France has an official border with Brazil. great quiz, though, epic!!

I know this comment has been around for a while but I'll reply anyway. I have made multiple corrections. First of all a lot of new type-ins have been added, such as Vatican, PNG, St Kitts, and Bosnia. I hope to have solved the 'France borders Brazil' problem by specifying that I am looking for 9 South American countries, since we can all agree France isn't a South American country. I changed the problematic '100,000,000 to 300,000,000' question. The Philippines and Ethiopia now both have more than 100,000,000 inhabitants, but to not get more than eight countries in the category I changed it to '100,000,000 to 200,000,000' since this includes the Philippines and Ethiopia, but leaves out Indonesia and Brazil, keeping the total at eight and the quiz valid until Pakistan decides to have 200,000,000 inhabitants but hey, we'll see about that later. Thanks for all your remarks and thanks for taking this quiz.

In fact no country has between 1 000 000 million and 3 000 000 million inhabitants. Not even the world does. 1 000 000 million = 1 000 000 000 000, and there are only around 7 500 000 000 people in the world.

Make up your mind where you're going to put French Guiana in your quizzes, either as part of France or part of South America

but you CANNOT act as if it doesn't exist!

Requiring that we write in "south" for Korea, Africa and Sudan is redundant, as South appears in the question!
Level 70
Apr 27, 2020
The question asks "Three countries whose name start with South'......... Korea isn't a country, neither is Sudan or Africa.

Such a stickler for spelling. Definitely made this tougher as I didn't always realize when I had misspelled a country and couldn't figure out why it was wrong... I'm looking at you "Columbia"

Just a suggestion, maybe add the question before every answer in step two in step 2. By this, the stats might look better. ;-)

Great quiz, maybe it should accept France for bordering Brazil as Guiana borders it.
