I got 14/16 and I knew which ones were the scrambles, and whether it was a country/capital, but I just couldn't unscramble them! This is by your sly moves of changing a letter or so in each meaningless scramble - I caught on to that and figured the ones that were meaningless and the ones that were not. ;)

For the same reason that it's not accepting BCEHRSTU as Buchrest.
