Llanfairpwllgwyngyll is the official name of the village, they added the rest to make it more of a tourist attraction

But since they added doesn’t that mean it’s the name? Surely it doesn’t matter why they added it?

The Millennium Stadium is now officially called the Principality Stadium - thanks to a sponsorship deal.

Argh, I should have gotten that one right based on the Principality part of the name, but I focused on Millennium instead and was thinking it was associated with the Millennium Wheel and Millennial Dome.

Millennium Dome got me too! As a non-Brit, I didn't realize it wasn't a stadium (nor did I remember it had been renamed the O2).

I saw the "Principality" part, which gave me pause... but at the end I figured that was a red herring, because: no. The Millennium Dome is definitely in London.

Ah well!

It's strange that the lake question is by far the least guessed, even though the picture gives it away.

Most people probably don't think to check the picture, but just guess Loch Lomond instead

Or, like me, don't register the "surface area" bit and know Loch Ness is the largest lake in the UK (by volume).

I never heard of the largest lake, but mostly based myself on the '3%' clue : realistically, could only be in Wales or Northern Ireland, cause 3% of Scotland's or England's surface area would be quite *huge* for a lake... (wanted to guess Ireland, chose Wales, i was wrong) (also i'm lousy at distances i have no idea how small/big Wales' surface area is)

But also, yeah it's totally visible on the map, never saw that xD It doesn't help that the question is quite far down, you don't even remember the picture exists.

I missed 3. Predictably, one of them was about sports. I'm actually very surprised by the one about the official flag. Thought that would definitely be England. Interesting.

As with so many things, the Troubles is the reason Northern Ireland doesn't have its own (official) flag. CGP Grey did a great video about this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gaQwC5QbLeQ

Facepalm on #7. So obvious (to this Englishman) in retrospect

I should qualify - should be obvious to anyone from the UK or with a fair grasp on UK politics (I would say constitution, but ...)

I'm completely confused by this one. Scotland surely does have its own separate legislature? It's called the Scottish Parliament.

@Pharley, yes, but the question is asking which country does not have its own legislature separate from the U.K Parliament

That is a low percentage guessed for a multiple choice question. Really quite a lot easier to get when it's in your own "country"
