I enjoy your geo-quizzes, so thanks for another one! Just one small quibble - a "residence" usually refers to a house rather than a whole suburb or neighbourhood, so I got thrown sideways on that question. BTW, did you mean to have two 'Rio de Janeiro' questions?

Gosh darn. It was pretty hard to find semi-well-known twelve letter things so accidentally did it again. Rats.

Ostergotland (really Östergötland) is not the name of an archipelago. It's the name of a "landskap", i.e. county. The county indeed does have a coast with a lot of islands but there are several different names, e.g. St Annas Skärgård.
