The main concern for case sensitivity in Q2 is that word rankings will change depending on if you are case sensitive or case insensitive (you can try this yourself and see what pops up). This is important when comparing your results to ours when we test the solution, so it's good to make sure everyone is on the same page. For Q1, the _output_ of running `common_words` with Afghanistan or afghanistan is going to be the same regardless of case; however, following a 'simpler is better' method may require looking at how country names are formatted in the dataset and make a judgement call about how difficult it would be search the dataset with case-insensitive methods. Hope this helps! Ryan (lab guy).
