Well, Greenland is not a real country. Although they have a language and permanent population. They still count as territory for Denmark.(Unfortunately, this is not a part of Denmark)So it is not a country of part of Denmark. The end.

Sudan is still the 3rd largest country in Africa, even without the small part that is now South Sudan. So yeah, it still beats out everything except for Algeria(which is number one) and DR Congo(which is number two).

People need to learn to read directions!! About a bajillion people have said that "Greenland is missing" or "Where is Greenland?" or some variant of those. I mean weren't people taught to read directions in Kindergarten, with that assignment where if you didn't follow the first direction: Do not do any of this, you would get everything wrong?

STILL, it is an important skill in life. Imagine if you forgot to read your boss's instructions on a job he gave you.You might do something wrong, get fired, go broke, starve, and die. All because you forgot to read two sentences of directions.

Wikipedia has a sortable table of countries by area. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_sovereign_states_and_dependencies_by_area You can see that when the list is sorted descending using only land area that China is larger than both Canada and the US, but of course if you sort by total area, the list changes substantially. It should also be noted that if Greenland is technically considered a part of the kingdom of Denmark, which would make it 2.16 million sq. km, just bigger than Saudi Arabia. And Antarctica, is the second largest 'landmass' after Russia, but it is claimed by several countries.

OK, well this quiz is officially wrong because the US has a larger area... now sure why it was changed?
reply

Jun 16, 2016

China is bigger, but the US, according to the CIA Factbook, is bigger due to the fact that they include coastal water area, which brings the area of the US much bigger
reply

If you were to not include the water area USA would rank 3rd China 2nd and Canada 4th.
