    One wrong. I need to study up on the prime meridian.

    Also, why isn’t prime meridian capitalized?

    I love quizzes like this, you guys need to have more! It’s a nice 5 minutes to boost your brain power throughout the day.

      Maybe we could institute a weekly quiz based on stories from the previous week.

    100%. First 11 were too easy; the rest I had to think. Maybe the prime meridian isn’t capitalized because its value is 0. The International Date Line seems usually capitalized, with a value of 180 degrees. Just pointless conjecture.
