I found the last question a bit confusing because as the first clue says countries or capitals (and the last clue refers to both countries and capitals as well), I assumed both the country name and the capital ended in A, had at most 6 letters, etc. Is this just me?

Both the first and last clue say country or capital, rather than country and capital. Wasn't confusing to me anyway.

The answer Kyrgyzstan is also correct besides Vietnam in blue5, since a sun is also a star. And there is only exactly one star on that flag.

May 16, 2021
Okay, this was talking about a mathematical star not a scientific star, of which the sun being a 3D object invalidates it from being such. That being said, I have amended the clue.

On these quizes it would be great if they auto filled all fields which the answer still applies to.

As when the next clue is revealed surely everyone just retypes the same answer just given rather than trying to think of one.

Whilst that's a neat idea, I don't think it's possible to do. It may also be unexpected behaviour for most users.

The only way to do it would be to remove the yellow box, but then typing one country (e.g. China) would immediately get you half the answers, which would ruin the experience of gradually thinking through the clues :)

They have to abide by the previous clues as well. I think you need to re-read the instructions.

Use the "Hide Cell" feature of Manual design mode in Step 4, this allows you to hide a cell until any of the selected answers have been guessed.

Mistake: Manila has 1.87M, METRO Manila (The region of alot of cities including Manila) has 12 million, Manila, is the city, METRO Manila is the region where 16-17 (I forgot) cities including manila. Alot of people gets mistaken on what Metro Manila and Manila is.
