This covers nothing about the assasination of Franz Ferdinand which was the real cause of the war.

The assassination is probably covered by Nationalism.

These aren't really the causes of WWI just general themes that the causes fall into. Causes are usually considered specific by historians, e.g. the Bosnian Crisis of 1908, or the British-German Naval Arms Race.

Very very poor quiz. Many countries at the time were and had always been militarized; many nations even before the war had a general alliance with each other; Imperialism was not a cause, Imperialism had been around way before WW1; rather it was the jealousy of Imperialism. Overall a very poor showing.

Where does the three staggering empires come from? I've heard of MAIN for the causes of the war, didn't realise there was an S added as well

The war would have broken out a few months later even if Ferdinand hadn't been assassinated. It was just the trigger.
