Nice idea for a quiz. One thing: If you're going to insist on the full-length version of Sri Lanka's capital (i.e. not allow "Kotte" which at the moment you don't), then please spell it correctly - and allow all the correct variants of it (of which the answer in the quiz doesn't seem to be one). But honestly, "Kotte" is a reaonsable shorthand and it would probably be fair to allow that?

Thanks for the feedback, the misspelling is corrected and Kotte is now acceptable as an answer

Not many people know this but Guangzhou is the most populated city in the world, so you should replace Shanghai with Guangzhou!

That is a common thing that has been said here on Jetpunk but it issomething has no back up in real facts. There have been plans about creating a mega city with Guangzhou as its core where it would merge with Shenzhen, Dongguan and Huizhou among others, but until that happens Shanghai is number one. I live in Shenzhen and in no way are we part of Guangzhou nor have I ever met a single person in this country who has ever reffered to Guangzhou as the biggest city in China or the world.
