How Well Do You Know The Collective Name of These People in Their Respective Places?

Sometimes we often confused of the native people who has a collective term for their dwelling places. So I came up with this quiz to introduce the term “demonym” — sounds devilish but it has different name.

A demonym  is a word that identifies residents or natives of a particular place, which is derived from the name of that particular place. For example, English is to England,  Spanish to Spain , Canadian to Canada, etc.

So I have created here a quiz to challenge your knowledge how much you know about demonyms of these following given places (cities from around the world, countries, famous and historical towns, etc.)

Take this quiz now and make sure to get a passing score of 12/20.

Good luck and enjoy!
