I love the Scotland one! I wonder if it'd make it easier to say it's the pattern too? Especially in socks.

Amazed the percentage of people who got that one is as high as it is. As a Brit I struggled with it.

My answer was an educated guess based on what I know that pattern to be called. Otherwise, I know exactly zero counties in Scotland.

I was a bit lost, guessing Aberdeen first. Then I realized the BIG clue they were giving.

I live in Angus, Scotland so that was my first guess. Then Aberdeenshire before finally noticing the pattern

Argyll must be famous for the fabric in the US? No way 30% of people have heard of the place.

It could be a case of guessing Scottish things starting with A? I guessed Ayrshire then Argyle

I live in New Zealand and I got it because of the socks. I didn't know it was also the name of a county in Scotland.

I knew the fabric/pattern. Wasn't aware there was a county by the same name. Only other time I recall hearing the name was when applied to William Wallace's uncle in the movie Braveheart.

It's not the fabric so much as the socks - cliche footwear for all nerds and geeks. In the US we also see it spelled as argyle.

I'm shocked at the realization that the Colorado Grand Canyon is not in Colorado.

It's not called the "Colorado Grand Canyon"; it's just the "Grand Canyon" that happens to have been formed by the Colorado River running through it.

Not sure what the Colorado Grand Canyon is... but I've been to the Grand Canyon, which is spread out between Arizona, Nevada, and Utah, but mostly in Arizona, and definitely not in Colorado.

I've been to the Black Canyon of the Gunnison in Colorado which sometimes is called the "Mini Grand Canyon". I've also been to Waimea Canyon on the Hawaiian isle of Kaua'i, which is also called the Grand Canyon of the Pacific - but the Grand Canyon in Arizona is the granddaddy of them all.

I kept trying Ayers Rock and gave up thinking the quiz wanted me to write the Aboriginal name. Only after the quiz ended did I realize it was asking for the name of the country :)

I didn't even notice the Amsterdam picture I was too focused on why Agryll wasn't being accepted until I realized I spelled it wrong. Also can you accept Ankor Wat for Angkor Wat?

I couldn't think of any Asian mountains beginning with a, but I had plenty of time left so I just started typing aa, ab, ac, etc hoping something would remind me. When I got to ar the light came on in my brain and it was shining on Noah's ark perched on top of Mt. Ararat (I always think of Harold Reid of the Statler Brothers making it sound more like Mt. "Arararat" when singing "Noah Found Grace".)

I wasted so much time typing "acropolis" before reading the caption, but did I learn my lesson for the very next one? Nope. "Ayers." "Ayers Rock." Hmmm. "Aeres Rock?" D'oh.

I knew Andalucia, but kept trying Andaluzia, cause that's how we say it in Portuguese. Damn it.
