Re: Swiss Canton Capitals - Quiz

9/15.

Should have gone with my gut instinct for a couple of others and would have reached double figures.

Guess I'm not ready for that naturalisation application

Re: Swiss Canton Capitals - Quiz

Very pleased with myself. I managed 11 out of 15.
Three others I was split between a choice of 2 and went for the wrong ones.

Re: Swiss Canton Capitals - Quiz

13/15 - I thought the "three parliaments" question was a trick, and didn't know about OIC.

BTW, a cool iPhone app for learning Swiss place locations is "Welcher Ort?"

Re: Swiss Canton Capitals - Quiz

11/15.
Grisons biggest canton? Maybe in terms of goats per capita.
Who's ever heard of Herisau? A half canton trick question!
Basel Stadt the smallest canton? Another half canton trick question!

Same here, quite annoying to think that I did know the answers to several I got wrong (Schwyz, Herisau) but that I let the wording lead me astray in suspecting trick questions where there weren't any.

Hmm... 11/15, but one of those I knew the right answer and clicked the wrong one. Please don't ask how that happened; I'm not sure myself!
