More difficult ones here. Thank you for the arrows! Also, it'd make sense if the colours in the titles below were the same as in the map, it's not quite consistent, at least as far as I can see.

Definitely harder than the previous quizzes, but I found most of the other quiz questions too easy. I like this level of difficulty.

It is very hard to create this type of quizzes for some letters. I just came to the letter J and it gave me a headache more than this one.

Some letters should undoubtedly be excluded (maybe just J and the end of the alphabet). Yet W has no countries but a surprising amount of geography to include :)

toughest one of this series by far! based on percentages I am not alone in that conclusion! I guess 16 of 20 isn't horrible as it beats 90% of test takers.

I like that you upped the hardness level because some of these other letters are pretty easy. The regions and sometimes the mountain ranges require a minute to think about.

Nope, says the Michigander. But I honestly have never heard of Darfur or the plateau, but the pampas region in Argentina...I thought that was farther north.

Really fun idea for new Quizzes !!!

Cities have an alphabetical error and the colours are not even close to what they are on the map.

I'm Argentinian and could barely recall it, and only after I saw the answer. It's a subregion of the Pampas, so it's very specific. Too specific, I'd say.

Mar 5, 2021
Yep, agreed. I got everything except Dry Pampas, Deccan Plateau and Durango. Perhaps consider amending that one Mr Voda? This is not a criticism as I have enjoyed many of your excellent quizzes. Dry Pampas doesn't even come up on a google search.

As I said, Semi-Arid Pampas aka Dry Pampas. It isn't a criticism, as your quizzes are excellent. It's just a bit obscure, especially when it's an "aka". I've never heard of the Semi-Arid Pampas either to be honest, but the Pampas, yes, of course - only it doesn't begin with D, as I am sure you noticed :)

Good quiz, as are the others in the series. Don't need 'Dry Pampas', could be whole series of , 'Damp Pampas' / 'Swampy Pampas' / 'Hot Pampas' / 'Warm but-not-too-bad Pampas etc.
