As the Talk page for your Source suggests, your source is not completely reliable. The 200th peak on its list has a prominence of 4039 feet, but peaks with higher prominence are omitted. For example, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mountain_peaks_of_Utah indicates that there are 16, not just 11, Utah peaks with prominence over 4039 feet.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. Rather than delete the quiz, I have added the mountains mentioned on the Talk page to the existing data.
