Some knowledge of the 50 state capitals will go a long way toward solving the Tuesday Test Time challenge for today's mentalfloss.com Brain Game. Good luck!

What U.S. states have capital cities with
names that are obviously of French origin?

Here are the ANSWERS.

THE ANSWERS:

BATON ROUGE, Louisiana
DES MOINES, Iowa
MONTPELIER, Vermont
PIERRE, South Dakota

NOTE: If your list included MONTGOMERY, Alabama, give yourself credit for that one as well ("Mont" is French, while the "Gomery" part of the name is German).

Others that may be on your list as well: BOISE, Idaho, and JUNEAU, Alaska.
