Totally blanked on Reykjavik - but in desperation tried "Rosseau," which accidentally gave me another answer!

Call me harsh but you did read the title of the quiz right? Perhaps you noticed a pattern emerging?

Rangoon is not a former name of Yangon. It is an alternative name that is (still) widely used. (according to the Oxford English Dictionary)

"Yangon, formerly known as Rangoon,..." is the first sentence in the Wikipedia article on the city. The name was officially changed 30 years ago. If anyone is still using the former name then they are doing so either ignorantly or obstinately. Regardless, they'd be incorrect.

Looking at the world map shown here, I thought Brazil was half rain forest. I know it's been shrinking drastically, but still... there's hardly anything left!

Rotterdam? I don't know which Dutch or perhaps Belgian city that is but it surely is not Rotterdam. Let's just say the Germans didn't leave that many buildings during their bombing of the city, so most buildings in R'dam are from after the war. I'd use a picture of the Erasmus bridge, the skyline, the cube houses or the market hall for Rotterdam.

Never heard of cube houses so had to look them up. Pretty cool to look at, but seems like there would be a lot of wasted space in them. Thanks for the info, very interesting.

It's kind of ironic that you think there'd be a lot of wasted space in them as they were specifically designed to optimise the use of space

I didn't immediately recognize it as Rotterdam either, as a Dutchman. But the houses look really Dutch, and there's water so you think of a port city, and it starts with R... it was still my first guess.

I immediately wrote Rijksdag. Wrong language. But can it still be accepted? or Rijkstag?

Don't see the point of accepting a swedish name for a german answer in a quiz in english. That's like accepting "Países Baixos" for Netherlands in a quiz in french

Why? The name in both German and English is Reichstag.
