Can "Danish Straits" be accepted? The picture looks like it's referring to the whole complex.

Please accept Bosporus

I second this. I don't remember ever seeing Bosporus spelled with an h, so didn't think to try adding one. In addition to Bosporus I also tried Istanbul; both are mentioned in the wikipedia article as common names for the strait.

I thought I just couldn't spell Skagerrak correctly, but now I've learned that the Kattegat is a separate thing.

Wow, I was sure I was looking at the Strait of Juan de Fuca. Massive facepalm when I saw the answer.

Too be fair, it is hard to see exactly where the magnifying glass is referring to

I found the magnifying glasses made it harder to see what I was looking at. I'd rather just have a circle & zoom in on that.

Shouldn't Oresund also be acceptable for the Sweden-Denmark strait?

No, because I zoomed in the bigger one. Yes, you can see Oresund, but if I want it as an answer I would zoom in only it.

Please accept Öresund and Øresund for Kattegatt. These are Kattegat in Swedish and Danish, the native languages.

Would recommend adding the Strait of Hormuz. And so few people got the Narrows, maybe add a "The _______" hint for that one.

At first I tried Verrazzano Narrows because I thought that was the name of the strait and not just the bridge. Fortunately I thought to just try Narrows.

I also thought that the straight was called that ("Verrazano Narrows") and was getting annoyed that none of my variant spellings were being accepted.

When I saw the answer I was a little put out that the quiz would only accept (what to my mind was) a strange alternative name, but when I double checked on Wikipedia, I discovered that - like you - nope! I was the one mistaken, and it's only the bridge that is called that, not the straight.

TIL.

Nice quiz. Some lenience on the spelling of "Malacca" would be helpful :)

Nommed! Could you loosen spelling a bit for Bab al-Mandab?
