Ukraine also works for the green category. I was typing Ukraine when it filled in the United Kingdom when I had typed uk.

That's just how typeins work. Ukraine is of course a valid answer, but it's not easy to type in since "UK" gets matched as valid first.

I think that you should change the last clue so that there aren't two end answers

There aren't two end answers anyway! Ukraine is at 579,000km2 land area, so does not satisfy the last clue. By "valid answer" in my previous comment, I was referring to the first 4 clues, not the final answer.

I think you missed a country that passes no green in the flag, and also should pass south of the equator (but was denied).

For the one that says the answer is Montenegro, isn't Guyana also a valid answer? Max elevation is 2772 metres, Guyana is 1 word, capital is north of the equator, only like 700.000 inhabitants and it has red and green in its flag.. Or am I missing something really obvious?
+4
Level 68
Dec 18, 2019
Okay, had a look at this and no idea how this slipped my spreadsheet... Both Guyana and Montenegro were valid for Red and Green.

After going back to the spreadsheet, it seems the only way to distinguish one (along with separating from the other 10 answers valid for the 4th clue), is to change it to Guyana, and have the clue be Green and White.

Thanks so much for noticing this!

I do like these quizes but the only time I have got the fifth answer, in any of them, is when my answer to the fourth question has also been the correct answer for the fifth. I just seem to blank. Which is not annoying in the slightest. QM, can you make sure, next time, you pick a final answer that is the same as whatever I pick for my fourth answer!? Cheers! Lol

For all 4 categories #5 was the only one I didn't get. It's easy when you answer #1 and that also answers #2 and so on. But it get's harder when you're down the line and have to think of a new country that fits all statements above while still being set on what you just answered before.

For the yellow box, question #1 is redundant as these countries will be ruled out by question #4 anyway. Just said.

So happy for the Nauru one I’d just gone around trying to find capitals with five letters and thought maybe Oceania then Yaren popped inTo my head. I got the UK one kinda by luck though despite living there as I was going to type Ukraine for some reason. Great quiz keep em coming

I love it when I guess a random country early on and it carries through so you don't have to search the world map in your head. I put Ethiopia three times for the fourth category and it makes it a lot easier when you just get lucky with an early choice

I really don't wanna sound picky but technically Nauru is no correct answer as Nauru has no offical capital, Yaren is only the island's biggest city and often considered its capital. But great quiz otherwise :)
