This isn't right, as the first bragging comment on a Jetpunk quiz, without superfluous age, time and nationality claims. Sorry, you thus fail.

Alas, that means we'll be deprived of the witty follow-ups like, "I'm only a foetus from Mars and I completed this quiz in less than a Planck time." Those are so funny.

For consistency's sake, Trivandrum should be changed to Thiruvananthapuram.

In that case, if speaking to a native, they wouldn't understand our English language attempt at pronunciation no matter how it's Romanized. While speaking English, why not use English pronunciations? Anyone speaking English has had to go through untold mental inputs to get to where they are, so why stop at some Indian city and switch to another pronunciation system? If speaking the native language of a city or country, then surely it won't be a stretch to keep learning and pronounce it correctly under those circumstances. Isn't it idiotically futile to arrogantly insist that everyone in Trivandrum speaking Malayalam start writing the baffling "New York City" instead of something they easily understand, like

ന്യൂ യോർക്ക് നഗരം or

"n'yū yēārkk nagara"?

I would argue the same applies to Bombay/Mumbai and Calcutta/Kolkata. The latter especially, because the pronunciation of those two spellings is virtually identical. Chennai is fair enough, because that's an actual change of name, but most Indian 'name changes' are really just changes in spelling for the same name.

THOSE TWO ARE DIFFERENT CONTEXTS. Trivandrum is not the official name of the city, it is a nickname of Thiruvanathapuram. bengaluru was a name change of Bangalore and it is the official name. Take it from someone who used to live in Thiruvanathapuram.

I speak Telugu, and I switch to the English pronunciation of western cities in Telugu.

And also what Proxima said.

Yes, yes, yes. What is the intention of insisting on Anglicized names for cities in English quizzes? Suggesting Trivandrum instead of Thiruvananthapuram is like suggesting Peking instead of Beijing, Constantinople instead of Istanbul and The Angels instead of Los Angeles. Personally, I didn't even recognize the name Trivandrum until I read the comments section after taking the quiz. Is it really too hard to memorize a few extra letters?

8 additional letters seems like more than a few to me. One could certainly still memorize the longer name, but I think it's understandable if folks would rather stick with the shorter one. Maybe a good compromise would be for Thiruvananthapuram to be the displayed named and have Trivandrum work as a type-in. But then other city names would need to be changed too for the sake of consistency, and that would require a lot of additional effort for the Quizmaster.

No, Varanasi holds very little significance in the Buddhist faith. If you want the holiest city in the Buddhist faith, look up Gaya.

To name all these, I would need some luck - now. So I said, "Mum, bai me an Indian atlas, please. Oh, and could you stop by the Delhi?" While waiting for mom to get back, I took a quiz on parts of the face. I didn't get many, but I did get two: Chenn, ai. I then took an extremely hard quiz. Ah med a bad mistake trying. I tried to Hydeder a bad mistake like that, but I couldn't. Then my dog Na came up to my room. So I decided to Pat na. I got bored, so I read some lore. I didn't like it, so I dropped some nasty comments. I bang a lore. When I got up from my chair, I feel and bruised my arm. "Amr, it sar." I said. Then my mom came back and I finished the quiz.

I think it's likely because it's the only answer that makes sense for the Andaman Islands. I didn't know about Port Blair either before taking this quiz, but I knew it obviously wasn't a major Indian city based on the fact that I recognize it. With reasonable guesswork though, I figured such an obscure city could belong only in the Andaman Islands, based on the fact that this SVG quiz has a dot there.
