"Kingston" gets you "Kingstown", so how are the percentages different?

Guess: formerly, Kingston didn't get you Kingstown.

Interesting question, but it would make more sense if you had to guess each of Kingston and Kingstown without being given the other one for free.

Does guessing Kingstown get you Kingston, as well? If not, there you go.

And more to the point, why does Kingston get you Kingstown. I know it does on the world capitals quiz, but why? I think if you know your capitals, you should know the difference.

Agreed. I was a little disappointed that I didn't get to enter both since I knew both.

Which? I can't think of any off hand.

Not in English, where a lot of capitals, who actually begin with K are spelled with C. For example Kopenhagen/Copenhagen.

If you're using the 'K', it would be Kobenhavn

Kopenhagen can also be right depending on what language we're talking about.

Does that get you a point on World Capitals? I have to think of Sri Lankan batsmen to remember how to spell it

It is given as a type-in on the 'S' quiz, but this is K and the capital properly begins with S.

I felt cheated when I typed Kingston and got Kingstown as well. I was pleased with myself remembering Kingstown. Should have to type them both separately, it detracts from the quiz.

It is simply because some people call Kingston Kingstown I believe, or maybe it was the other way around.

I'm so sorry Africa. I learned all your countries so maybe one day I'll know your capitals.

Please accept Koala Lumpur. I realize that isn't how it is spelled, but autocorrect correct Kuala to Koala, which may mean someone won't get it or they waste time trying to figure out the mistake autocorrect made.

That's quite an amusing anecdote! But rather than change the quiz, why don't you just turn off autocorrect?

That sound more like a town in Ireland - sort of like Killarny or Kilkenny. XD

I got Kigali because I remembered it from the capitals quiz, but I couldn't remember what country it was the capital of until I looked it up afterwards
