And I couldn't get past Kyoto for Kosovo. Although I'm perfectly aware that's it's a city... Also I wanted to smack my head at the desk, when I missed Germany although I live here! *facepalm*

Possibly also add a disclaimer that they're all one word.

Apr 25, 2019
Why ? Did you find other possible answers? If all the answers to a quiz hold exactly 2 vowels, or contain a t, that doesnt need to be in the disclaimer. It is not a requirement

This quiz was surprisingly easy. My theory is that we can intuit most of these country names because we can perceive most written words by just glancing at the first and last letters.

Hence the optical illusion where all the letters in the paragraph are shuffled within their words, except the first and last. Most people (not me, though) can pretty easily read it all as if there was no change!

Kiribati was tough b/c it makes an 's' sound at the end. (Like kiribas,) so I was not thinking about that until 2 seconds remained.
