"What sea touches Yemen, Oman, Iran, Pakistan, and India?" According to the International Hydrographic Organization, it doesn't touch Iran. See p. 20 of "https://www.iho.int/iho_pubs/standard/S-23/S-23_Ed3_1953_EN.pdf".

Maybe the question could be rephrased to "body of water". "Lake" seems misleading (even though it's correct) since "Sea" is part of the name.

The same reason why it wouldn't take 'oorungootang' as correct.

Not anymore... The region still referred to as Indochina but it is no longer French. Also the question is phrased 'what is', not 'what was'.

French Indochina was Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. Indochina also includes Thailand, Myanmar, and part of Malaysia. Maybe they could switch out Laos for Thailand to make the question less ambiguous.
