No, but I know many of them. I actually had no idea that the Netherlands had two aircraft carriers before doing the research for this one.

Please update this quiz. China has a third carrier now, named Fujian.

It's not commissioned yet, it's still under outfitting as far as I know. I'm pretty sure it's not going to be battle-ready for 5 years or so.

B-but what about our glorious Graf Zeppelin? Just kidding, as far as I know it never entered service and was just captured by the Soviets after WW2 to be used for target practice. I think it's time though, we need the FRS Adenauer. Not sure if our new "special military budget" of 100 billion is enough, but hell, if Italy can afford two carriers, then so can we! How should we name the second one? Schmidt or Kohl would be boring, Schröder is a traitor, Brandt was a pacifist, Kiesinger was an ex-nazi. That leaves us with... FRS Merkel? Greeks beware, she's coming to collect that debt money after all. OK, enough mad rambling for today.

Formidable is spelled incorrectly. It is not Formidible but HMS Formidable. Clemenceau is also spelled incorrectly, it is spelled like I just showed you.

Additionally, the fate of many of the ships you listed are very misleading. You should explain in more detail or just leave out the ship's final fate altogether because it has the potential to confuse quiz takers. For example, ships like Oriskany, Independence, Saratoga and America were not sunk in combat but as targets after the war. The way you have it makes it appear as though those particular ships were combat losses which is definitely not true. The same is true for "retired" ships. Basically every ship is retired at some point but some are scrapped and others are preserved as museum ships or sunk as targets. You should probably make that distinction.
