Not me! I'm not that fast a typist and could definitely have used another minute.

This could do with a bit more time. Didn't even get on to the mandarin section - also put the ones with less overlap with other categories further up so we know we have to move quicker! I assumed it would just be European ones so took my time thinking I was nearly done when there was Arabic + mandarin hiding at the bottom to finish :(

I'm not "hiding" anything. I did not write anywhere that it is all gonna be European languages so I do not know how you would assume so and blame it on me. Maybe don't use your own "common sense" to assume anything next time.

I don’t know what quiz you’re using but Saudi Arabia should be on there:

Saudi Arabia pop: 30.77m, Arabic speakers: 27.18m

Iraq pop: 36.00m, Arabic speakers: 22.91m

Yemen pop: 23.83m, Arabic Speakers: 14.67m
