Can you accept "Calcutta" for "Kolkata"? You accept "Bombay" for "Mumbai", after all.

Okay, Calcutta will work now. But it's not exactly, the "flavor of the week", @rgc1600. It's been Kolkata since 2001.

as the original poster said, you accepted Bombay and it changed it's name in 1996 so there was less reason to accept it than Calcutta

As an Indian I would recommened that please use Mumbai and Kolkata only as they are the official new names of Bombay and Calcutta respectively. Usage of old names still remind us of the brutal colonial rule and better that it's forgotten

It should be spelled "canning", unless Singapore is big on beating people with canes as punishment.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caning_in_Singapore The quiz indeed means "to strike with a cane".

Actually Singapore IS big on beating people with canes. That is what the clue meant!! So, caning with 1 "n" is correct.

Probably created by some American who do not know Singapore beyond generic things like those. And of all things, caning, when it is done all over many parts of Asia. All the other cities have positive examples or landmarks, while Singapore gets "caning"? The Merlion, Marina Bay Sands, Raffles, Changi Airport, Orchard Road, etc, would have been fairer representation of this country.

Americans know about caning in Singapore because an American citizen, Michael Fay, was given a caning sentence for vandalism in 1994, which caused a lot of media coverage.

Cool quiz, got 100%, though Shanghai was just a guess. I concur with others that Calcutta should be accepted for Kolkata, and also maybe Macao for Macau. The SAR is usually spelled Macau but the city is often spelled Macao. I thought Samsung was headquartered in Busan, not Seoul, but I looked it up and found out I was wrong.

Recheck your math. Calcutta was officially changed to Kolkata in 2001, fourteen years ago, and both spellings of Macao / Macau are considered acceptable to their government. (In Portuguese - the original Roman alphabet transliteration - the Macau spelling is now preferred. Not many on this site could enter the traditional Chinese name, 澳門, without some difficulty.)

We learnt it as Calcutta all the way through primary school, even after the name was changed.
