Hindi for Fiji is quite misleading since only 28% are hindus while about 64% are christian (45% protestant).

1. Speaking Hindi does not mean you are Hindu, the number of Hindi speakers are higher than the number of Hindus.

2. From ~1940s - 2000s, the percentage of Hindi speaking people in Fiji were higher than Fijian speakers.

3. It doesn’t need to be a direct pointer to the country, but we all know that Fiji is basically the only country you can associate with Hindi, in Oceania that is.

Hope that helped.

Great quiz idea! A wee bit more time would be nice for those of us whose phone keypads (and/or brains!) are not that swift ...

Damn, "teardrop" was hard. I got it, but I really had to think abstractly about the shape of countries on the map before I was able to guess Sri Lanka. Don't know how anybody would get there through pure serendipitous free association.

"Teardrop of the Indian Ocean" is a nickname for Sri Lanka. If you don't know that though, the question could be hard. I think that's okay though.

Hey Alula, isn't it the teardrop of India? That's what I have heard before.

Tear drop completely threw me. I had no idea what the heck it was all about. Then I saw the answer and ehhh yeah, it’s a good clue. Sneaky, but good.

I clemently protest the usage of city name as a hint. There are options.

really clever...great quiz. Got 24 but looking at the answers I probably should have gotten 3 more. Never would have gotten Tear Drop but makes perfect sense as a clue.

Great quiz but I would agree about the city being removed. It's the only odd one out of the group. Kiwi, or Māori would work too. Would still be pretty easy but less obvious then a city.
