Nice quiz- but please change the green color since that's what comes up with a correct answer.

Are there any browser extensions or display settings for the colorblind? This is one ugly, ugly looking map, though. Not sure anything could be done to fix it.

I tried Uganda and Afghanistan numerous times for Pink and was certain Uzbekistan would not make the Pink List and didn't try it. Looked it up and the internet search results I got agree with me and others commenting and not with this Quiz or Yako. What gives?!? I'd like something other than "wrong and wrong" to persuade me I'm wrong.

No, Canada has over 37 million people, Saudi Arabia has about 34 million (2019 estimates).

However Uganda and Afghanistan both have more people than Uzbekistan.

I have seen some sources that put Uzbekistan higher than Afghanistan and some that don't, but I haven't found any sources that put Uzbekistan higher than Uganda (and it's not even particularly close) including the ones that claim to be up-to-date literally to the day.

Citypopulation, wikipedia and this quiz (https://www.jetpunk.com/quizzes/top-50-countries-by-population-in-order) which uses the 2019 worldometer data all say that Uganda has more people than Uzbekistan and Afghanistan. Each by more than 5 million. I know Uganda´s population grows fast, but it is like that for a while now. Can somebody please fix this already or finally tell us a credible source disproving our claim!

I really like this one, nice when someone can think of an inventive way of presenting a quiz. Its just much more interesting and a better challenge than simply memorising the most populous countries. Now, if someone could figure out a way to randomise it, that'd be pretty cool!

Too bad the lazy quiz creator, by the name of Quizzer6794, won’t ever bother fixing the issue regarding Uganda having a higher population than Uzbekistan, even though literally all of the recent comments refer to it…

Is the quiz creator a friend of yours or something? Because this comment can only be a rib on your mate, surely? No-one would really make such a pompous statement seriously, and without irony...

In case it's not:

a) get some perspective, this is very much a "first-world issue";

b) plenty of the comments are not about this 'issue,' most of them are grateful for the guy (or girl?) spending the time to create the quiz (for your enjoyment);

c) the fact that he (or she?) has spent the time making it suggests he is anything but lazy;

c) knowing the difference between the populations of Uganda and Uzbekistan will not help you in life, save for some extremely improbable scenarios;

d) pedantry is not a virtue (neither is pomposity).
