At first, I thought that there was just one cathedral in Paris but of course not. Notre Dame is the main roman catholic cathedral, but there are other branches of catholicism as well as orthodoxy. In the end, it seems there are ten of them!

Nassau was named for William III of Orange-Nassau. Not for a German city.

I was thinking the same thing. Maybe if it said German house or castle or family?

@kalbahamat. You are right. I left out a few steps. The original Nassau was the German city.

Northern Ireland isn't really '1/4th' of the UK - that suggests a quarter of either area or population when of course it constitutes far less than that. It'd be more accurate to describe it as "one of the UK's four constituent countries" or something similar.

I agree with the premise of what you're saying, but it would be technically wrong to call Northern Ireland a country as there is in fact no universally accepted term to describe it. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northern_Ireland#descriptions)

But the url you quote actually states "is variously described as a country, province or region of the United Kingdom, amongst other terms" Aren't you contradicting yourself??

Officially, the United Kingdom is a Unitary State which includes 2 countries (England, Scotland - for now) a principality (Wales) and a province (NI). Northern Ireland is a province.

Because "Loch" is lake. Similarly you'd find Lake Michigan under M.

I had heard of Novi Sad, but for some reason I thought it was Vojvodina Novi Sad. No idea where I got that from. Annoying as it cost me the clean sweep.

Vojvodina is the autonomous province, and Novi Sad its capital. You probably got that from the name of the football club, though, the FK Vojvodina Novi Sad...

It's interesting that the third city in Serbia also starts with an N - Nis, and its digits are pretty close to those of Novi Sad.

Yes it should be. Normandie is widely used in English as well. Most quizzes accept Corse for Corsica.

Maybe instead of having two questions about Naples you could replace one with Neman (river that flows through Belarus, Lithuania and Russia), Nizhny Novgorod (major city and the centre of the river tourism in Russia) or Novaya Zemlya (archipelago where Soviets tested the most powerful atomic bomb in history)?
