It wasn't Xerxes, but Cyrus the Great. Xerxes became a king of Persia in 486 BC, when the whole territory of modern Turkey had been conquered by Persians

I've never heard of Qibla before. I knew that Muslims prey towards Mecca, but I didn't know that there's a special name for the direction.

Seriously? I thought everyone knew their directions. Turn right at Cairo, then travel 1685 km due Qibla.

Basic Islam vocabulary, though doesn't have anything to do with Turkey specifically. But Q answers are hard to come up with.

I think you should add some other well-known football clubs as possible answers. The first club that I tried was Gençlerbirliği.

"Empire that conquered Turkey starting in 133 BC”

Turkey did not exist by that time. Turkey is not the name of the area, but of the country that sits on Anatolia and was formed long after.

Please correct that, it is very wrong

In the same way, nothing ever happened in what is now the USA until Delaware ratified the constitution. Yeah, right.

Half of these questions have nothing to do with the state/country of Turkey, they just happened to take place in the same geographic area it occupies.

Half of the test has nothing to do with Turkey.

You should change the name of the test to ''Anatolia A-Z''
