think of Rocky Mountain vs. Rocky Mountains. the first one assumes that thats the name of the mountain, the plural sounds like a range

First off, the Cascades are called the Coast Range on the Canadian side of the border. This should be accepted, too. Secondly, the range is 'the Cascades," but we often say "the Cascade range." Both should be accepted.

@kdc4: the Cascade and Coastal ranges are two totally different mountain ranges. Cascades are volcanic, Coastal not so much. It has nothing to do with a border.

Cascade will work now. Also changed the clue so that "Coast Range" is not valid.

I almost didn't get the Cascades because it's so rare that they're on a quiz and because I only associate them with Washington state, not B.C. or Oregon. Silly me.

p.s. The dividing line between the Cascades and the Coast Range is the Fraser river, not the Canadian border.

It's nobody's fault, Rey. It's just the way it is and there's nothing wrong with that. If Guatemala was 100x larger and more ecologically and culturally diverse, with 300 million people living there and many more big famous cities, and had made considerably more notable contributions to world history and culture, and most of the users of the website came from Guatemala, then there would probably be more questions about Guatemala.

Yeah, imagine if a country like Brazil were the size of the United States, were culturally and geographically diverse, had 200 million people living there with lots of major cities and had notable contributions to world history and culture, there would surely be at least one question about Brazil.

I don't know about anyone else, but, given the clue, I was trying to think of "Cape C..." rather than realising that the "C" was that of "Cape".

moreover, reasoning this way, every "cape" should belong to "c" category, every mountain to "m" category, every lake to "l" and so on... to me, this does not make any sense, i humbly suggest to remove the question

Capo de Hornos should count, IMO.
+1
level 59
May 23, 2018
If you mean Cabo de Hornos, I agree. Additionally, I'm in favour of accepting Cape Hoorn, as it was named after the city of Hoorn in the Netherlands. I admit that I'm rather biased in this matter though, as it's “Kap Hoorn” in German, so I'm used to the spelling with oo.

As others have said...would have gotten a perfect score but for Cape Horn...since that would be an "H"...Cape Cod, sure...

May 23, 2018
hmmmm Cape Horn is misleading because if 'Cape' is in the question already you think it does not count as a C word so I was looking for a cape that starts with C not any other letter.Other than that great!
+1
level 47
May 29, 2018
That is exactly why I didn't even bother typing it...I thought of it and moved on, because Horn doesn't start with C. I figured there must be another Cape down there that started with a C.

Didn't throw me. Let me see, what is the cape at the bottom of South America? It is Cape Horn, and that starts with C. :-)

But, as has been stated and repeated many times, the fact that the question asked for a "Cape" makes the Cape part of the name in the answer redundant. I think we all knew it was Cape Horn but were fooled by the fact that it said "near to" and then I, for one, started self-examining and asking myself "why the heck don't I know a cape that starts with C close to Cape Horn........"

I agree with the whole Cape Horn thing. I've submitted a change to Cape Cod, and then added Cusco as another answer to keep the South / North balance.
