POLITICAL MAP QUIZ
Thanks Pesky Wesky, these are fun......The question referenced in point 1 below I got wrong, but I still don't understand the logic behind the answer LOL.....therefore.....please can you explain:

1) Where is Seville, the capital of Andalusia? The answer indicated it was Barcelona way so I'm clearly missing the history behind this

Also.......

2) It seems there's a typo on the spelling of Saragossa (spelt without a Z)....or is this an anglo spelling to retain the sound for non-spanish speaking folks?

I'm getting confuuused too!

The correct answer to
1) Where is Seville, the capital of Andalusia?
is option A which refers to letter H on the map, which is in the south of Spain.

And Saragossa is the English name for Zaragoza much as Londres = London for the Spanish.

I guessed as much but I've only ever encountered it in its Spanish form LOL

Exactly, but it oddly enough indicated Barcelona as being the correct answer for me hence why I queried it......strange
