But is it worth adding, since New York is already the answer for the second clue? Perhaps move that clue down to the top of the state list, with the clue "US State or 'the city that never sleeps'".

I'd like to suggest a few possible south american questions. Nazca is the most obvious one. Natal is a rather big and well-known brazilian city. I also thought of the word "Nevado", which is used in the name of many mountains in the Andes, in Colombia, Argentina and Chile.

@ ander217, The ideal "Americas Geography" quiz would have more than 1 question about the USA; the rest of North America; Central America & Caribbean; and South America. Anyway, I think some people are getting too angry in the comments, for the sole reason that details aren't perfect in every quiz.

'Niagara Falls' not the name of any single waterfall, but refers to the set of the three waterfalls on the Niagara River that separate the cities of Niagara Falls, Ontario, and Niagara Falls, New York. The famous one is on the the Canadian side and actually called 'Horseshoe Falls', while the other two are on the American side and are called 'American Falls' and 'Bridal Veil Falls'.

Please get real! - When asked about Canadian honeymoon plans, 99.9% of responses would be "Niagara Falls", not "Bridal Falls" or "Horseshoe Falls." - So, it is NIAGARA FALLS!

It's fine to design a test as you see fit, but you should be honest with the title. Specially when it's featured. This test is restricted to North America, and the title is misleading.

Agreed if it was a north america quiz i wouldnt have taken it. I wanted to know what i knew about middle and south america and yes i know middle america isnt a continent but a region). Otherwise i would ve taken an usa quiz. Maybe that is the reason? To get more people to take it? I wouldnt know why though, if people dont take one quiz they ll chose another. It is not the only quuz on the site, so no need for false advertising.

with the right title everybody is happy and people will get what they came for. (It is like calling a quiz cats and dogs and not having questions about one of them)

with regard to the world's largest waterfall- the worlds largest waterfall is actually Angel Falls in Venezuela. Angel Fall's uninterrupted drop of 2,648 feet (807 meters) is still a record breaker and is around 15 times the height of North America's Niagara Falls, according to the World Waterfall Database. please update this or remove it from the quiz. thank you. :)

Angel Falls is the longest drop, that doesn't make it the largest. Niagara has an annual flow rate of 2,407 cubic metres per second. Iguazu Falls are 2,700 wide. So the question then is should largest mean highest, flow rate or width. In this case the quiz maker has chosen flow-rate as the criteria, I'm sure there are quizzes in Jet-Punk that deal with the highest falls and then Angle Falls will get the prize.

I'm so bad at Canadian provinces. I thought, there might be one called "Northern...something". The answer that sprang to mind was "Northern Wastes". Then I thought, oh, no, wait, that's in Middle-Earth.

In this quiz you have decided to add "Canadian Provinces" which includes Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland and Labrador. You have also added "Newest Canadian Province" which is Nunavut. I'm a little confused why you don't just turn the latter into "Canadian Territories" and include both Nunavut and Northwest Territories.

It's been at least half a year since someone said "why no South America", so is it time to say it again without looking at what's already been posted? I accept that there just aren't that many well known N's in South America. It's true. The most glaring omission for this quiz is Nicaragua (then Nuevo Leon). Really what this quiz makes me think is 'hmm, I never realized there are so few N's other than in North America'.
