So does south Sudan

It still hasn't fixed for me and Somalia has MALI in it as well. Otherwise, I love this quiz format though

Level 59

Somalia? South Sudan?

Not fixed. Apart from this, very interesting and very good.

Benin has two capitals, no?

That's what I thought too

I usually do these quizzes backwards to give myself more of a challenge.

Level 71
Feb 13, 2023
Yes, Somalia has Mali and South Sudan has Sudan.

eSwatini?

"That border(s) Tunisia."

Good quiz, but the question "To have another country contained in its name" is really bad. There are 4 possible answers and only 1 is randomly correct (Guinea-Bissau, SoMALIa, Equatorial Guinea, South Sudan)

Could use more time, but great quiz! I also agree with GoblinOfCooz that the question about containing another country within its name should accept all four possible options.

Level 72
Feb 26, 2023
Better still, it is ought to be a different question. If it accepted all four answers it would mess up the format, the point of being that the pool of possible answers are eliminated one at a time.

Just a suggestion, but couldn't you fix the "To have another country contained in its name" problem by changing that clue to "To have a name containing a hyphen"?
+1
Level 52
Feb 14, 2023
Just a note, but doesn't "Somalia" contain "Mali"?

Also, Eswatini has some weird capitalization going on

+3
Level 72
Feb 26, 2023
Not that weird. eSwatini is how name is spelt in the Swazi language.

For me the definite article in front of Ivory Coast was very confusing, I don't think one does that
+1
Level 80
Oct 5, 2023
??? It's not showing a definite article in front of Ivory Coast for me?

Ivory Coast doesn't really have two capitals. It has one capital and one primary city that dominates economically. Benin is closer to having two capitals: an official capital and a different city that is the seat of government

Yeah. This quiz was last updated in April 2021 and it's really beginning to show.

This is minor, but some questions were capitalized and some were not. "That border Tunisia" should say "That borders Tunisia". There is no prequel; the link is broken.
