The last alphabetical capital is nasty unless you're one who reads and ponders the quiz in advance. It's just time consuming to "compute" the answer. Has it ever been considered to not reveal the questions until "Start Quiz" is entered?

Very interesting quiz, I got 14/20 but I should’ve got the alphabet one as I thought Trenton like six seconds before it ended and typed New Jersey in but it was in the wrong box and then I ran out of time, oh well

Florida will always be #1 in news stories too nuts to believe.

Never enough time on these types of state quizzes. Even 30 seconds would help with the harder clues.

As a non-American, I could have done a lot better with more thinking time. Of course I could work out many of the answers in advance, but I prefer to play the quiz in real time.

Why are so many quizzes on this site so mean with the times given?

if the time limit is so extensive that you can guess randomly or sit and ponder every answer at length... scores will become less meaningful, and quizzes will generally be more boring to take. If you prefer to take the quizzes untimed, that's an option, you just won't get to compare how you did to everyone else who took it timed.

I got 100% of the ones I answered but ran out of time. This needs to have a little more time.

yeah.. again.. if there is so much time that you can just keep guessing until you get every answer... everyone could get 100% of every answer... but that's boring. If you only answer the ones that you know without guessing a bunch of times, you wouldn't need more time.

I disagree. I wasn't randomly guessing, and sat and thought about my answers, and I am an admittedly slow reader. I didn't even get to the last 6 questions. This quiz could have used another minute.
