Finally got around to changing this one. Surprisingly enough no changes in terms on answers (2022->2024). The number of schools in each country is slowly evening out though -- major increase for China and a slight decrease for the US.

It could be "Amount of University" and then be by weight or something.

That would be fun.

Thank you for the remark, wasn't aware of the difference as I'm not a native speaker. Should be correct now.

It's a list that ranks universities on the basis of the number of publications in English. Which makes it very biased (the primary function of a university shouldn't be to publish, and not necessarily in English).

I also thought that having Australia above China was just not right

The source numbers don't match the numbers on the quiz. I looked only because I was (very) surprised that Switzerland wasn't a correct answer. (As stalintime points out, ETH Zurich is generally ranked as one the top universities in the world.) The source says that Switzerland has 3 universities in the top 100. Some other discrepancies, too, mostly smallish. Maybe the source info is different now?

Indeed, the source info is from 2021. Will get to updating this shortly.

Re-typed Switzerland several times thinking I may have spelling it wrong -- Zurich is always in these types of lists.
