Yeah, half the "attractions" from the US is quite a limited world-view. I'd suggest either making an only-US test, or a world test.

If all the attractions in the US where notable outside it, it wouldn't be that much of a problem. But imagine a test asking for an aquarium in Sao Pablo, a beach in Salvador de Bahia, and the location of the Brazilian constitution.

"America" is shorthand in English (and German, Russian, Ukrainian, Polish, Italian, French, Arabic, and Japanese) for the United States of America and its inhabitants, in the same way Russia is shorthand for the Russian Federation, Mexico short for the United States of Mexico, etc. Just because Spanish (and other language) speakers insist that "America" or its variants refer to the continent does not mean speakers of other languages need to adhere to such linguistic prescriptivism.

I may disagree, I'm French and it is clear that America is a language abuse when you want to mean the USA.

We use generally America or Americas for the continent(s) (depending if you consider one piece of lands or two "economical" blocks like Fifa does) and the US for the USA. The French Academy is pretty clear on that subject.

+3
Level 74

@stankyC The continent was named first, way before your country even existed. The fact that many people have assimilated the usage the US coopted doesn't make it right.

Also, the Mexico and Russia examples are false analogies. A more apt one would be a comparison with the UK (which is not Great Britain, just as the US is not America, but both are located in those respective places).

+4
Level 69
Nov 9, 2018
@stankyC: In German, the country is predominantly referred to as "USA" and its institutions, e.g., as "US troups" (both shorter than referring to America(n)!). But I agree that its inhabitants are typically referred to as "Amerikaner/Americans", presumably because people are just too lazy to specify the additional syllables "US-Americans". Nevertheless, for the sake of clarity and because America always refers first to the continent: get a proper demonym for the USA! :-D

America is the United States, in virtually every country and language in the world. It's no more an abuse of language than calling the French Republic "France." The Spanish word for American, most often referring to citizens of the United States, is "Americano."
+1
Level 67
Nov 22, 2020
While "America" is sometimes used to refer to the US in French, German and Italian, which are the languages I speak, everyone understands that this is just a colloquial shorthand, and that the term properly refers to the continent of America (which most of the world considers to be one continent made up of a Northern and a Southern part). "America", without context, is the continent. In any official context, or wherever there might be confusion, the US is referred to as the US.

Level 67
Nov 22, 2020
The comparison to France is really bad, because as far as I know, there's no other place than France that has been calling itself France since before the French Republic. It's more like if Moldova suddenly called itself "the United States of Europe", and insisted that "Europe" exclusively refer to itself.

Still extremely America-centric, as is nearly every quiz on this website. If every other city in the answers is from one country each, I don't understand why America is special enough to have 7 and to previously have had 12. If an Australian made this quiz for example and had 12 answers being Australian cities, no non-Australian players would do well so its a lot harder for non-Americans such as myself to participate on this website.

I know this is an American site and I have no problem with US-centric quizzes if they're described as such so you know what you're taking, but 50% of the answers are in the US and they're pretty lame ones at that is a bit daft in my opinion when you would assume this quiz is going to be about global cities.

This should just be made into a USA tourist attraction quiz (after all you're already half way there!) and then just make another one for true international tourist attractions with just the main, true international destinations from the USA in it.

Jan 26, 2018
Half of the cities are located in USA. Again and again I find those tests being created in a way that will show how smart americans are because someone doesn't know where coke museum is. And I bet coke museum is actually a better tourism attraction than pyramids or temples in Tokyo, Marina Bay in Singapore or concentration camps in Auchwitz. Unfortunately Americans wouldn't be able to guess anything that's not in major US city.

List of tourist attractions, where you can find ignorant American tourists. Who else but Americans would pick Checkpoint charlie as place to go in Berlin or TianAnMen square in Beijing, where was no "Western media created" -massacre. One who studies the truth open minded will find that there was 11 people died in an accident in TianAnMen square run over by AFV accidentally. Most casualties happened, when criminals armed by "someone" opened fire against soldiers middle of the night West from TianAnMen square and soldiers responded to fire. Most victims, few hundred at most, were mainly these armed criminals and soldiers and some bystanders. Most protesters had already left the square the day before. There were only some students from countryside, who didn't have dormitory to go to sleep or didn't afford to go to hotel and were camping on the square. Pictures west have missed - the disemboweled soldiers burnt and hanged on bridges. These were acts of criminals, not peaceful protesters.

Disregarding your weird Chinese propaganda, I agree that Checkpoint Charlie is not the most interesting thing to see in Berlin (I'd head to the Museumsinsel, or the Tiergarten, or Unter den Linden, or the Wannsee, or many other places first), but it *is* a major tourist attraction. It also only takes a few minutes to visit and is pretty central, so, what the hell, go for it. As for Tiananmen Square, where something quite definitely did happen, it's interesting to see - one of the biggest squares I've ever seen, with interesting buildings on it, the Gate of Heavenly Peace, and Mao's Mausoleum. And, if nothing else, it's the entrance to the Forbidden City, which is definitely worth it. I agree that there's a lot more to see in Beijing, but I would think that a trip that doesn't include Tiananmen would be pretty weird.

I dont mean this to sound rude but I dont understand all this hatred against the questions being about the U.S. Forgive me if I am wrong but this is a USA based website right? If I was making a quiz on here about famous tourist attractions, I'd probably name the ones around me first. I'm sure I'd include some very well know ones from other countries but at first my first instinct would be ones I'm extremely familiar with.
