Islamic should work, I agree, but no one spells Muslim as "Moslem". That's just your ignorance.

Ignore Guam's ignorance. It's commonly transliterated as Moslem, though far less common now than it used to be. Here's an Ngram showing the changes in time. relessness, please accept 'moslem' as well :)

As a child, I learnt the spelling Mueslim. In not-so-old books, Mussulman (and variations thereof) was common in the UK.

it is and I dont know why people keep saying it isnt... they seem to want it not to be one very badly. (maybe easier to remember, or because it is a strange construction and people like simple?)

Not too hard. Missed one African river and one Japanese island.

And Cyprus exists in the space between spaces. Just like the aliens from Indiana Jones 4.

I read the category as "Biggest Nordic Countries" and I was getting so angry that Sweden, Finland, etc, weren't working. Then I realized it was asking for CITIES. Duh. Also, I love how people on this site will argue about the UK in every quiz that asks about it.

akbadry - Sweden, Norway, Iceland, Denmark and Finland are the Nordic Countries.

Scandinavia is occasionally used as a synonym but more properly is Sweden, Norway and Denmark as per relessness

Norway, Sweden, and Finland are collectively known as Fennoscandia. Norway, Sweden, and Denmark are collectively known as Scandinavia. Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, and Denmark are collectively known as the Nordic Countries. Don't get them mixed up.

I would like to amend the old saying that nothing's sure but death & taxes to nothing's sure but death, taxes, & that people will argue over whether Cyprus is Asian or European or African & whether the UK actually contains four countries.

^ alieninvasion109: That is so disingenuous! - The correct answer should be accepted, whatever language it is written in. If not then the English translations of: El Salvador, Costa Rica, Argentina, Belarus, eSwatini, Nicaragua, Honduras, Surinam, Sri Lanka and a host of others should also be required.

Since I'm not good with rivers and pretty much everything about Africa I thought so hard about those answers and felt proud to have gotten Niger and Congo (which is actually very easy if you think about it... no judging :P) that I missed the Nile...

When I lived in Israel I'm pretty sure they called it the Greek Orthodox quarter, not Armenian.

No they definitely did not. Armenians are NOT Greek Orthodox. There are Greek Orthodox and Catholic churches both in the Christian quarter.

Just wondering why some of these answers are not listed alphabetically. I mean, it makes sense for categories such as "Most populous cities", "Longest rivers" and such, but when its just a list of countries or cities (like Countries of the UK or European countries starting with L), they seem to be ordered randomly. Or am I missing something? Great quiz nonetheless!

Got all except 'Armenian'. I didn't know about any of the 'Quarters of Old Jerusalem', and I just decided to type 'Jewish'. When that worked, I quickly typed the other two, but failed to get the remaining one as I thought it was another religion.

The Armenians have their own quarter distinct from the other Christians because they got there first. Also their quarter is basically a fortress which is part of why they've managed to stick around so long.

Both Oslo and Helsinki as about 630.000-640.000 inhabitants. Gothenburg has about 570.000. The gap is so small so wondering if it makes sense to call the four biggest cities a "group" by population (I know that they are capitals, but the question could ask for capitals then).
