i agree on the time that 15 min. leaves only 6 seconds per answer, good on jeopardy but not when spelling counts

not just spelling takes the time in this quiz

the order in each category is tricky even when you have many pieces of the puzzle in mind

the order of answers is not alphabetical or related to the answer in the next column

It would be doable as state capital then largest city for each state on the same line but sorting through your head all the states capitals and biggest cities by population alone is too much unrelated information

I liked the challenge here but would definitely agree that more time would be good. 20 minutes at least, 30 probably better.
