Three because you could also count in Akrotiri & Dhekelia, but let's not do that.

It doesn't matter where Cyprus is; the UK is in Europe which is what matters for the purposes of the quiz. The quiz is about European countries that border one other country, not European countries that border one other European country. Besides, Akrotiri and Dhekelia don't count, as they are overseas territories.

Nit-picky - but you should specify land borders. For example, Denmark and Sweden's waters abut in several places, and even the two mainlands come as close as about 25 miles.

Surely you mean 2,5 miles ;).

Nit-picky more: there's 40 miles between the two mainlands and no bridge - there is, however, a bridge from the Swedish mainland to the Danish island of Zealand, which at the northeastern corner is only 2.5 miles from Sweden

I was under the impression that Monaco borders at least Italy too, clearly I am wrong.

Monaco was created from part of Genua territory and later Genua wanted to restore its reign but failed many times. Not more than 100 years later, in 1388 Savoy took neighboring Nice County and become together with France (which competed with Spain) most significant in Monaco history.

As a result of arrangements of Congress of Vienna in 1815 Monaco become protectorate of Sardinia (successor of Savoy). With the protectorate, that lasted nearly half a century, Italian was the official language of Monaco. The Monégasque dialect is closer to Italian than French, but influenced by both.

In 1860 and year later France got Nice and Savoy from Sardinia and annexed 95% of Monaco territory and 80% of its residents - Menton (base its economy) and Roquebrune. Since then Monaco is subject to France.

Italy and Monaco are very close, but there is a narrow slice of France in between them.

I'm pretty sure there is a bridge connecting Copenhagen (Denmark) to Malmo (Sweden).

But there's no land connecting them.

So, if no overseas territories are to be considered, why is the UK on this list? Their only border is with Ireland, but is the overseas territory of Northern Ireland that has this border. I can see why Ireland is on this list, as it is not an overseas territory, but UK makes not sense to me.

I believe Northern Ireland isn't considered a territory, the same way Scotland and Wales aren't considered territories. Places like Gibraltar and the British Virgin Islands, however, are.

Correct. Northern Ireland is a constituent part of the UK - it's even in the full name, which is United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. This is not the same as e.g. Gibraltar, which is a British Overseas Territory and therefore not formally a part of the UK.

Northern Ireland isn't an overseas territory, it's part and parcel of the UK.
