Excellent Quiz (can't really add anything to that)!

This is hands-down the best China subdivision quiz on here.
Comment below threshold:

Sorry, but the Chinese Subdivision test was already made, before users ever could make their own tests. But this one is more comprehensive. Includes the SAR's and one municipality that was not included on the Sporcle-made test.

13/33 from the first try, and I knew most of what I've missed. Thanks eRep :)

Finally, a quiz about the different regions of China with a map of the regions! Just one suggestion, though: if you this quiz was done so that you'd have to be able to pinpoint the provinces, and not just throw the names out at random, this would be the perfect quiz.

Please accept Xianggang for Hong Kong. Thanks. Great quiz.

I think it was B Kliban who created a comic panel with a Chinese field labourer saying to another "Personally, I'm sick of the whole Fukian province".

far better than the previous provincial quiz, which had a glaring inaccuracy and was not as well-organised as yours. also, please accept Gvangjsih (official Zhuang name) for Guangxi, and the abbreviations for the full English names of Macau, Guangxi, Inner Mongolia, Ningxia, and Xinjiang

i enjoyed it!
May 28th, 2012 at 00:43 GMT
would it be possible to allow having tone marked entries be acceptable answers? either enter with tone marks (difficult) or numbers (easier) representing them? ex: Běijīng or Bei3jing1 as alternate acceptable answers, especially as tones are as important as any letter in chinese. could help in learning the names with the proper tones. (also i second a request for xianggang as an alternate for hongkong, seeing as macao can me aomen)

I have made a HTML5 version that only accept Chinese characters here: http://sokoban.ws/game/sheng.php

BTW, the Pinyins for 陕西 and 山西 are the same (the tone is different). Both are Shanxi. As a result, 陕西 is spelled Shaanxi here.

Given the size and importance of China, I'm surprised a quiz like this has taken so long to come out.
Sep 2nd, 2012 at 19:15 GMT
That being said, I got 1
Sep 2nd, 2012 at 19:26 GMT
44 percent in the 30-33 range? It's either shenanigans, or there are a lot more Chinese on Sporcle than I realized.
Sep 2nd, 2012 at 19:32 GMT
I like how my old quizzes like this and cantons of Switzerland is suddenly getting published. Thanks Sporcle!
PS: When you've mastered this quiz, it's time to go for the real prize: All 83 federal subjects of Russia!
Sep 2nd, 2012 at 21:31 GMT
Yeah, I'm sorry but I refuse to believe that 42% of the people who took this quiz on a western website got 30-33 answers without cheating.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 02:48 GMT
@Khazar + PJSeeds. There are a lot of ex-pat sporclers who live or have lived in China.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 03:31 GMT
i've been to china twice, love to travel and am way into geography and current events and got 27 right, but my initial thought as well was--i'd love to see the results for non-chinese quiz takers. i cannot imagine every single friend i know combining to get more than 12, let alone on their first go around and having all the spelling right.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 05:00 GMT
I'm American and I got 30 correct without cheating. Unless you consider taking an interest in geography and the Chinese language cheating.
Sep 3rd, 2012 at 12:47 GMT
I find the spelling more difficult than 'Kyrgyzstan'! Always have difficulty with transliteration of Chinese to English, although this has improved since travelling to China a few times this year. Another thing I noticed in China: Sporcle is blocked! *Shakes fist at the Great Firewall*
Sep 4th, 2012 at 01:36 GMT
i could always get on sporcle in china, just last month
Sep 4th, 2012 at 02:42 GMT
I think most people who don't know anything about China wouldn't even try. I know I'm not even going to bother with the Swiss cantons, cause I would get a solid zero.
Sep 5th, 2012 at 13:07 GMT
@1447 It seems like I helped make this game published. I commented on Aug 31st, and it got published on Sep 2nd. @buJ + ahh The site is not blocked, I am visiting from mainland China. @Kangrui Your argument makes sense. Though it seems very easy for me, I can't get Shaanxi right at my first try.
Sep 5th, 2012 at 18:47 GMT
The average Chinese food-eating American can get at least a few if they pay attention to their takeout menus. Szechuan (Sichuan) and Hunan styles of cooking are pretty popular in American Chinese restaurants. If the quiz accepted the historical exonym "Canton" for Guangdong, many people would probably get that, too. Beyond that, Tibet, Taiwan, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Macau are easy answers. Inner Mongolia and Xinjiang aren't too difficult to get, either.
Sep 11th, 2012 at 17:58 GMT
I got two, and wrote one wrong.
Dec 16th, 2012 at 14:53 GMT
would be even nicer if you include Xizang for the answer for T**et
