Great job again! I got stuck on Mecca but that's completely my fault.

I would swap 'What national capital's name means ...' and 'In which city would you find ...' since random trivia such as that is much less known. You forgot the question mark in 'What is the national animal ...', but I believe you already used it in #8. If you want, you can replace it with a question relating the U. K. An example would be the capital of Scotland, but that's lesser-known so that would go later on.

In the future, you should feature more about the U.K. They have 15% of the views as of this quiz.

Personally I would like to see more questions about naming landmass. This would include peninsulas (Anatolia, Brittany, Iberian, Kamchatka, etc) or islands (Hispaniola, Sakhalin, Luzon, etc.) and I think there's a lot of possible content there, but that's personal preference.

Thanks! I've fixed those mistakes and replaced the bald eagle question (thanks for spotting it on #8) with one about the UK ;)
