Grammar: Taller peak of the two

Neither taller nor tallest is correct, as the question is referring to a point. The correct would be highest peak or higher peak. In a higher vs highest (or taller vs tallest) argument, highest (or tallest) would be more correct because the question specifies "of the two". Although this difference is negligible and both would certainly be correct.

I thought England and Scotland were constituent countries, Wales a principality and Northern Ireland a province. You live and learn.

Wales isn't a principality since it isn't ruled by a prince. Historically it's more of a debate, but certainly since the United Kingdom has existed, it isn't a principality

in the grand tradition of Jetpunk pedantry, Wales has only one official language, which is Welsh. English has no formal legal protection anywhere in the UK.

Welsh and English are both de jure official languages of Wales.

no, they're not. Welsh is the only de jure official language in any part of the UK.

Nope, according to Wikipedia, both Welsh and English are the official languages of Wales.

Yep. Notice the bit in your link where it says that "Welsh is the only official language in any part of the UK"?

Clue: it's in the bit headed 'language'.

question 11 doesn’t really make sense, i’m not sure wales ‘contains’ the island. perhaps ‘owns’ or ‘controls’? or ‘anglesey is part of which country’?

The megacity one is incorrect if you are just talking about the city of London, Londons population is less than 10 million. Unless you are including the outer area which doesn't actually count as London, which should be said on the question as it is misleading

Somehow I read the capital question as having 6 letters.. no idea why. So I got it wrong, the only one though! I have done like 10 true false quizzes today and I aways get 2 or 3 wrong.

Surprised at how low the Celtic nations one is though! Do people think English is a Celtic language then? . Especially since there are some other more obscure questions, like the st David one.
