I read the title. And then promptly forgot that all of the answers had to be 4-letters long before I finished reading the first question.

I do hope that the capital of Greenland is twinned with the largest city in New Jersey :-)

I was about to write the same thing. Xi'an is a well known Chinese city. I wonder why it is not here...

It was used on Quiz #1 (this is quiz #2) so presumably it was to avoid duplication.

Good idea - I was surprised there was no X. Plenty of 4-letter words. And *anything* can be defended as being human geography...

Quad is the outlier here. It's too vague. Everything else is a proper noun. Maybe if it referred to a specific quad it would belong better.

Switzerland doesn't have a capital.

Yet the government is seated there, so while it has no official capital, it certainly does have a de facto one.

But a de facto capital is still not a capital.

Huh?? Of course it is! It's not a de jure capital; but the question said nothing about that.

I typed in Roman for R not thinking about only four letters and surprisingly, I got it! I have no idea what Roma is in this quiz.

The Roma are a nomadic people who left Iran ages ago and their descendants live in Europe and Asia. Sadly they were a main target of the Nazis and many were killed.

You might know this group better as 'gypsies', although this term has fallen out of favor.

I couldn't remember the most common name in China but then I noticed that that question was the 'W' question and instantly I thought of Wang :D

Arabs are not the most common ethnic group in North Africa... it is widely accepted among historians that the Arabs conquered, spread Islam then left. Most didn't settle there, and those who did were not enough to outnumber the local indigenous Berber (Amazigh) population. To this day, culture, language, culinary traditions, music etc has remained distinctly Amazigh in most of North Africa... I think you should put a different clue.
