I don't get it. Tons of other almost completely unknown languages are showing as 100% answered.

I'm guessing that if you get a country right, it gives you credit for each official/national language for that country, even the ones you didn't mention. Malawi's other official language is English so if you get that maybe you also get credit for Chewa.

For several other countries as well. Cyprus, Pakistan, Malaysia come to my mind. They have English as their official languages too. How come Hindi doesn't work for India?

There's a couple small things but otherwise the quiz is pretty good. If I were to recommend anything, I'd say to use Official Languages of the World as your source.

- Namibia doesn't have German as an official language.

- Tanzania, Kenya, Pakistan, and Malta have English as an official language.

- Hausa is not an official language in Nigeria.

- Arabic is not official in Israel or Senegal.

- Yoruba is not official in Benin.

- English is not official across the Kingdom of the Netherlands. I'd imagine it'd be similar to the status of Welsh in the UK or Catalan in Spain.

- Austria does not have Croatian or Hungarian as an official language.

- Slovak is not official in Czechia.

- Romani is not official in Serbia and Sweden.

- Jetpunk considers Dari and Tajik to be dialects of Persian. You can keep Farsi/Dari/Tajik as answers, but Persian should be allowed as a type-in.

- Jetpunk considers Hindi/Urdu/Fiji Hindi as dialects of Hindustani. Having Urdu is fine, but allow Hindustani as a type-in.

- Jetpunk considers Croatian, Serbian, Bosnian, and Montenegrin to be dialects of Serbo-Croatian.

- English is not an official language in Sri Lanka.

- Tonga is not official in Zambia.

- Finnish is not official in Sweden.

- Tigrinya, Oromo, Somali, and Afar are official languages in Ethiopia.

- Sotho, Northern Sotho, Southern Ndebele, Swazi, Tsonga, Tswana, Venda, and Xhosa are official languages in South Africa.

- (Mandarin) Chinese is official in Singapore.

- The names of Montenegro, the Netherlands, and the US deviate from Jetpunk standard.

- Gilbertese is an official language in Kiribati.

- French is no longer an official language in Mali. Out of their official languages, Bambara is dominant.

- "Iceland" is accepted for Icelandic when it probably shouldn't.

- Indonesian is a variety of Malay. "Indonesian" should still be a valid answer, but Malay should be an accepted type-in.

- Aymara and Quechua are official languages in Peru.

- Quechua isn't official in Ecuador.

- Berber is an official language in Morocco and Algeria. "Tamazight" for Algeria is fine, but Berber should be an accepted type-in.

- Hindi is an official language in India, not Tamil.

- While displaying Portuguese for Equatorial Guinea is technically correct, Spanish is the dominant language so that should probably be preferred.
