Agreed! Note that outside the US, sulfur becomes sulphur and falls off this list.

Great quiz, original idea and challenging but not overly! Only issue is the 'C' answers. The current answer has 7 letters compared to some that are shown already like copper, which has 6. In addition, there's a missing 6 letter answer (Carbon).

Also, why are 4 of them already shown? For O, P, and S, you have to type all elements typing, but for C you don't...

I would second that, and add ‘Cesium’ (spelt Caesium here in the UK but always the six letter way on JP). I was baffled when it showed Calcium as my missing answer! Lol 😂
