Tarns are well known in the north of England but appear to be uncommon elsewhere judging by results. Have just walked around Tarn Hows in Cumbria, very enjoyable.

One of my favourite tarns in the Lake District, especially early Autumn morning with a light mist over the tarn and the Autumn reds and golds in the trees.

Since Pashto is the official language of Afghanistan maybe you can just say primary language of Afghanistan - at least as far as I know Pashto isn't just Kabul-related

It's arguable that Pashto is the main language of Afghanistan, but if it is it's only by a narrow margin. It's definitely the main language of Kabul, though. I reckon the clue's a good 'un.

If it was going by offical, Persian (the Dari variety), would also be correct.

Should Pashtun not be accepted as well?

Guessed Pashtun as well, not knowing that Pashto is the name of the language and that Pashtun basically refers to those that speak it.

Yes, please. Yangzi is about as correct today as Beijing instead of Peking, (although most people tend to use the older spelling).

Can you accept Titicaca for the lake question, as it is a small mountain lake. I know you were looking for the term, but this meets the criteria of the question.

Feb 11, 2016
At over 100 miles long, 50 miles wide, I don't think Titicaca can be considered a 'small' lake.

If you were to open up this can of worms, I think you'd need to accept Tahoe, amongst many others.

In the previous quiz (#2) I had the clue "Lava-spewing mountain" for the V clue. The answer was 'volcano', but there were calls to add "Vesuvius". I know this kind of request is technically not incorrect, but if I wanted Vesuvius there would be something more specific in the clue to warrant that. Similarly for this one - if a specific lake like Titicaca, or Tahoe were the answer, the clue would require something more specific to warrant that answer, like "Large South American lake" etc, or "Lake near Reno". When you see a generalized clue, you can count on a generalized answer.

Could you accept smoke for the Beijing question?
+1
level 65
Jul 22, 2018
Smoke is not problematic of itself as it rises and disperses. Mixing with foggy atmospheric conditions means it is denser than the air and stays low suffocating the populace. or to put it another way, it may be smokey all the time in Beijing but when it is also foggy, and smog forms, there's a problem.
