yes , you are right Goa and Pondicherry were once colonized by the Portuguese Empire , but in this quiz they are focusing more on the official languages . In this case East Timor(Timor-Leste)is the only asian country to be qualified to be in this list . Macau also speaks a lot of Portuguese but they are considered part of China .

No, Pondicherry wasn't ruled by the Portuguese. I think they confused Daman, Diu, Dadra and Nagar Haveli with Pondicherry.

that can't be it because it doesn't count as playing the quiz if you don't type in any answers, so what the stats mean, is that only 99% of people that correctly guess one of the answers gets Portugal.

Or assumes it doesn't need to be included because it's so obvious, or just completely forgets it because it's so obvious (like I have done with the Biggest Spanish Empire Countries, for example, in which it completely slipped my mind that I should include Spain).

I never knew Portuguese was being spoken in Equatorial Guinea, seeing as it used to be a Spanish colony. Apparently Portuguese only became an official language in 2010.

Macao is a Special Administrative Region of China. It enjoys certain powers separate from the Chinese government (as does Hong Kong) and has Portuguese as an official language, but is not fully sovereign so is not included here.

Shouldn't this include China, as part of it (Macau) does have Portuguese as an official language. India doesn't need to be included as far as I can tell because Portuguese is not the official language in Goa.

There are Portuguese creole speakers there. French is the official language that almost nobody speaks in EG - they made it official in order to connect better with the neighbours and to be part of the Francophonie, according to Wikipedia.
