That's not downtown, either. That part of the city was empty until about 2003.

Yes, I agree, as the name is widely known throughout India and other places in general.

The Dead Sea picture is not really helpful. The person in the photo appears to be alive. :) This is more like "Name a sea that begins with 'D'." In a picture quiz, the picture should convey the answer, not just be a decoration.

I can't tell if this is a joke, but the Dead sea is famous for being so saline that the water is dense enough to keep you afloat.

I think it's not an easy clue, but a clever one. Usually you would get a picture that shows something typical of a sea, like the outline or a famous city on it's shore. Here your first thought is "a picture with water? Well yeah it is a sea", but if you then think about why this picture is supposed to be very specific for the answer you can get the hint.

With its concentration in salt, much more of your body (approx 35% of its volume) stays above the waterline. For regular water, it's typically little more than your head.

The town of Dover lies just out of shot to the left- I was born there!

Not sure that's a great picture for Dallas, unless American football was invented in Dallas and is a tourist hotsport, much like Rugby?

Such a famous franchise that it is known as "America's Team." As an Eagles fan, I would never call them that, but that is besides the point.

Definitely, and even if it wasn't, most people can probably recognize that the sport is American football, and thus the clue is essentially just "name an American city starting with D."

New Delhi is a part of Delhi, and the image - Red Fort - is not in New Delhi, but in Delhi only.

I felt like I was doing well at 11/18, but only beat 51%.

I guess if you know capitals, you can get Doha. And religious familiarity will get Dome on the Rock. Maybe Dubrovnik is well-known amongst Europeans.
