Thanks! 😀

Yes, I know the quiz is very hard. Only those who live in Mumbai and know these regions (all of these are regions of the city now, except the one you got correct) would ace the quiz.

What should I make next? Any suggestions?

I wouldn't know if this SVG is well-made since I don't know what the islands of Mumbai are supposed to look like but ... well, congrats anyways.

I used this source to draw the islands. And thanks for playing this quiz! :)

P.S These islands are now merged into a larger island now known as Salsette, on which the city of Mumbai sits.

Nice SVG! I honestly never knew that Mumbai was divided into all these little islets, so that was interesting to learn.

The only possible idea I have would be to do something similar to this series from Jiaozira, but for the Indian states. Of course, you'd have to ask permission from him first, but I think he'd be willing to let you do something like it. Also, if you want to borrow any of my SVG formats, feel free! With these types of quizzes, I think it's just good to explore and experiment with ideas that you think would be cool. Get creative!

I don't know if I'd be able to make such quizzes, but if that happens I'll surely ask permission from him. My priority is to complete the state trivia and then SVGs. :)

Os portugueses foram os primeiros a colonizar Bombaim.

Alternate History Idea: What if Bombay stayed Portuguese?

It would become the largest Portuguese city, but I doubt it it would be as influential and rich as it is today.
