  2. 4. Which is the capital of Sri Lanka?
    d) Colombo

    this is wrong. the correct answer is Sri Jayawardanapura. but the commercial capital is Colombo.

    1. Till some years back Colombo was the official capital of Sri Lanka. Now Parliament is located in Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte and it is officially capital of Sri Lanka. President’s House continues to be in Colombo. Supreme Court is in Colombo. In Sri Lanka President has more powers.

      Modified. Thank You.
