292nd taker of the quiz :) (it shows, because the average s at 10 and would expect it to drop. Only got 4 but definitely couldve gotten 5 more. I was thinking ghent but I only know the spelling gent, it didnt occur to me that that wasnt the english spelling. Plus Genoa, I just typed that in a previous quiz less than a minute ago.

I wont say the others in case there are those sneaksy cheaters around, searching for answers in the comments..

Well I could do it like this: I got, 1,11,13,15,

And could ve gotten 8,14,17,18 and completely didnt read 19 which was a rather easy one too.

17/22. Can't believe I missed Ghent. That used to be my main go-to nonsense word that I would type to occupy my mind whenever I was stuck on writing a paper or something like that.

This is not extremely difficult. The average score is 10/22 and there are only six questions guessed by less than a third of takers.

I myself found the quiz straightforward, I only missed Johor. So clearly false advertising to me, can't say I'm not disappointed.

Nice quiz. You might want to tweak the Nauru clue a little, because the refugee detention centre you allude to was closed in 2019.
