Question 12 is not great. It’s incorrect to say that the USSR “teamed up” with the USA as the Soviet invasion of Manchuria happened pretty much entirely independent of America. Really, as the UK worked with the US to produce nuclear weapons, the UK would make more sense as an answer.

It was Kokura, not Kyoto as the original target for the 2nd bombing. Kyoto was actually one of the cities the US decided to not destroy for its historical and cultural significance.

I understand why you would think that Kokura (now Kitakyushu) would have been an original target. It was in the 5 candidates for the bombings along with Hiroshima, Yokohama, Niigata and Kyoto. Out of those cities, Kyoto and Hiroshima were chosen, but to preserve Kyoto's historical and cultural significance, Nagasaki was replaced as the other target. Thank you for expressing your concern though.

I mean it was Kokura though, only reason why it ended up being Nagasaki because when Boxcar literally reached Kokura, it was too cloudy for them to proceed with that target.

'Manhattan Project' is spelled incorrectly, you have it as 'projest'

I would reword 9 to something like, "which company had an employee who survived both bombs?" The current wording reads as if the company only has one employee.

I don't believe your answer for the original cities is correct and I encourage you to double check.
