I am 13 and I'm quite good at it but I kept making some mistakes but i ended up getting 30. I haven't got fat fingers and I type fast it's just that sometimes I make mistakes

I've found using Command/Ctrl+Delete. It clears the answer bar(or a row of text if used in other circumstances). Really helps me with quickly fixing mistakes.

This quiz shouldn't accept misspellings in my opinion. Or atleast misspellings leaving the last letter missing.

For example, I answered Riyadh and went on to answer several other capitals only to realize none of those were accepted because "Riyad" was accepted for "Riyadh" and the h started my next answer and the capitals started piling one after the other "hLondonDublinBerlinParisMadridLisbon".

+8
Level 74
Dec 26, 2017
We agree. Riyadh, Tallinn, Phnom Penh and Sana'a now have to have their last letters typed to earn the point.

But maybe that was you, because the next one down is 53, nothing in between.. (but doesnt have to be, sometimes multiple persons needs to get a certain score for the percentage of quiztakers to be high enough to be registered.)

Well, technically Jerusalem is not the capital of Israel, it's Tel Aviv. But I'm nitpicky, it was fun!

Level 74
Aug 19, 2019
We've gone off what the nations themselves declare their country's capital to be. Israel's parliament is in Jerusalem, although it doesn't automatically follow that the location of the parliament must also be the country capital (think Amsterdam and Pretoria, for example).

Level 56
Jul 8, 2020
I am trying to type in things as humanly possibly fast WITHOUT LOOKING at the screen - I look at keys. For the love of god - accept FULL ANSWERS ONLY. I don't want that goddamn leftover 'n' from Tallinn left on the screen, nor the leftover 'a' from Sanaa left either. It's irritating in every single quiz. Accept full answers only - no one likes those left over letters in the type-in box that serves no purpose but to slow down the people who actually can spell correctly.
