No, no. Steppes do lie at the east end of Russia's European part, but related to Russia as a whole, Siberia covers the east, steppes are something of a "midwest".

Georgia was my 15th try....I just don't think of that area as "Asia." Tried Madras for Detroit of India, didn't work. Then misspelled it Chenmai. Finally looked it up. (Which, btw to those who love attacking those of us who look-up answers, I don't think of as cheating but rather learning--if I research an answer, I will remember it. But if I read it on a list of red errors, I'll forget it in 2 minutes. And I don't brag about the scores--I know I'm not getting 100% if I looked it up!)

No one has to justify their actions on any quiz to me and I occasionally look up a word if I know it but can't quite get one of the many accepted spellings, (unless there is a caveat that correct spelling is required) but if your whole purpose in doing so is for learning, you could always wait until the quiz is over and then do your research so it doesn't skew the results for everyone else.

I google the answer when I know for sure it is correct and just can't figure out the spelling. It's not cheating because on every decent quiz they accept every answer the pronunciation of which sounds correct.

What are you saying? Just because it is not a sovereign nation doesn't mean it can't have a capital. Take a US state for example, or the Falkland Islands. Neither is a sovereign state, both have capitals.

Nice quiz, thanks! But is Georgia Asian? I'd put it (and Armenia and Azerbaijan) as European, being west of the Volga (Europe is supposed by many to end where the Volga runs into the Caspian Sea). I dismissed it because of the Asian designation.

From maps I've seen, Georgia is mainly in Asia, with the far north being located in Europe. Russia, Turkey, Azerbaijan, and Kazakhstan have land in both Europe and Asia.

Another French cave famous for prehistoric paintings is Chauvet, which also happens to have 7 letters. But by asking for "caves" plural, the answer is limited to Lascaux caves.

Still, not many would know the difference.

Only 39% have guessed those Finnish cities? I thought it would have been more obvious since Finnish language and especially names are pretty distinctive from any other language.

They are pretty unknown cities on the world stage. Most people visit Helsinki or Lapland (which isn't a city). Tampere is beautiful though the way it sits between those two lakes.
