Those things are not well known and also incredibly difficult to verify. I'd give an 90% chance that at least one of these is either incorrect or doesn't have an adequate source. 50% that this applies to all three.

Congratulations for getting to level 42 and still clinging to the hope that Cyprus could ever be considered a European country. Most lose their faith well before then.

Needs more time.

The elimination of guessed countries, which is normally helpful when you reach the end, did not help on this quiz as by the time you get through all the questions there is no time left to consult it, so you may as well not have it. But if you do add more time and keep it, I'd suggest more well-known abbreviations e.g.three-letter alpha codes,rather than two-letter alpha codes.

As the quiz is about country superlatives, I'd change the hints for Poland and Ukraine. To give you some examples:

Poland - no 1 apple producer in Europe, no 1 mushroom exporter in the world, no 1 windows exporter in the world, no 1 electric buses producer in EU, no 1 razor blades exporter in the world

Ukraine - no 1 corn exporter in Europe, no 1 world exporter of seed oils as well as sunflower seeds

I'm not a big fan of the Greece clue. It should be "Southernmost point inside Europe", because several European countries (Spain, France and Norway, at least) have integral parts of their territories far to the south of Crete.

It's a cool fact, and I got it right away. However, it was also the last question I read. I imagine its position at the end of the quiz contributed to the low percentage that got it right, especially given all the comments requesting more time.
