Thank you! This was quite difficult for me as non-native speaker, until I saw with one of my answers that country codes are accepted. Then it was very easy, only X and for some reason Z were harder.

I tried ZIM and ZAM, but they were not accepted. I have learned that acronyms are formed by first letters of words, like NASA, and they are pronounced as a word, not letter by letter like NHL. By that definition country code ZAM for Zambia would be abbreviation (?), not acronym, but the quiz accepts for example FIN for Finland.

Thank you for enjoying this quiz! But not all country codes are just the first 3 letters. The reason ZIM and ZAM didn't work for countries is because Zimbabwe is ZWE and Zambia is ZMB.

Yes, they are not. Like MAL would be ambigious, because there are many countries, like Malta, Malawi etc.

PS. Probably my list I thought is country codes used by International Olympic Committee. I know most of them by watching sports, but not all.
