Amazing quiz! Feels cool to be one of the first to take it. Maybe accept just 'Zhangjiajie' as well? I thought I knew the answer but was left confused. Apart from that really well made!

Great quiz but not mobile friendly.

Serie (not a word in English) should probably be series and battle (one of the most famous battle) should be plural.

Nice, as usual!

I think the box with numbers 1-7 could be removed as it confused me a bit since not all countries have numbers. Maybe you could avoid Qing-Qingdao both as answers as typing the second one gives you the first one

Great quiz! I'm kicking myself a bit because I tried Kai-Shek for Chiang Kai-Shek but I just remembered after finishing the quiz that family names come first in China. Would love to see a quiz like this for India!
