Nice Quiz! 13/15 then 15/15

Question, why do quizzes show as featured before they get on the main page? And why do you have an unfeatured quiz?

The whole of Philippines is within the Tropics zone. Maybe you got it confused with tropical climate, although Manila has tropical climate anyway (according to Wikipedia).

Why is the latitude randomly given for some, but not for others??

It is missing on 5 of them (some tropics some not)
