Handout questions: loved the Commowealth Games question. Got 8 of 10. Capitals a bit harder. Flummoxed by (a) what counts as a country (is Honk Kong one for example) (b) do you accept answers with 3 or more words and (c) some capitals have multiple spellings which can make them one word or two Ulan Bator vs Ulaanbaatar) and depending on how strict you are, the answers range from around nine to maybe a dozen or more, so I'm not sure which ten you are claiming!

Hi Gavin, and welcome to LAM.

Right the capitals. No capitals with 3 words or more. No non-sovereign states.
Ulan Bator counted as one of the answers. The one I didn't get was South Tarawa/Tarawa Atoll - I mistakenly thought the capital of Kiribati was just Tarawa.

Other 7: - Kuwait City - Kuala Lumpur - Abu Dhabi - Port Moresby - Port Vila - New Delhi - Phnom Penh

Thanks for taking the time and trouble to leave a comment about the podcast.
