Only one I missed, but that's because I thought I'd already typed it. I hate it when I take one quiz, and then think I've already typed those answers on the next one I take.

My guess: more people speak Spanish outside of Argentina than Portuguese outside of Brazil. Larger potential for profit.

I started guessing countries with big populations because it seems obvious to me that they would have more authors, but Brazil, Pakistan, Nigeria, Bangladesh, Mexico, Ethiopia, and the Philippines were not on here and all have over a hundred million people. I ended up missing Iran and South Korea.

I was surprised not to see Bangladesh, considering its large population and importance of literature, but then again most books published in Bengali are probably in West Bengal, because of Tagore , Ram Mohan Roy and others. But still this influence is still prevalent in Bangladesh also.
