Cool quiz! Some of these had me pretty stumped. The 2008 terrorist attack especially--I confuse the 2006 and 2008 attacks (didn't know which was the trains and which was the hotel), and so I didn't know which was deadlier. I also was very unsure about the cow slaughtering and was surprised that all of India's 10 tallest buildings are in Mumbai.
