Beg to differ on Ethiopia being the "birthplace". Certainly old, but not as old as Olduvai Gorge in Tanzania.

Australia’s Refugee and Humanitarian Program resettles 20,000 refugees each year. This increase came as part of the Houston Expert Panel recommendations in 2012, upping the number from 13,750. Australia is in the top three countries for resettlement of refugees. The USA, Canada and Australia provide 90 percent of global resettlement places

I was shocked at that as well. The 'economy' section on the Wiki page for Nauru is really interesting.

Tesla was born in Austro-Hungarian empire, modern day Croatia, identified as a Yugoslav and died as an American. Moreover "Tesla" now denotes a corporation. As for Novak, he is half Montenegrin, half Croatian and lives in Monaco. Just eject Serbia from this quiz or put less ambiguous clues like perhaps Slobodan Milosevic.

Tesla has Serbian roots and his family members got murdered for being Serbian by Croatians during wartime. The village is indeed in modern day Croatia, but I'd be surprised if he'd identify as such. His final resting place happens to be in Serbia as well. As for Mr Djokovic, he adheres to the Serbian orthodox church, but more importantly he has Sebian nationality, which should account for something... Not disputing the general statement of your note, but do see the choices not as ambiguous as you state them to be.

Yes. Djokovic identifies as Serbian, and he is always identified as Serbian in tennis competitions (which is how the whole world knows him). When I close my eyes and picture his last name, I cannot help but picture the little Serbian flag next to it (that's actually how I remember what the flag looks like!).

"Gold Coast" was a bit confusing as I'm an Australian and my common sense tells me that the more popular Gold Coast would be the right answer. Hadn't even heard of the one in Ghana before this.

Before taking quizzes on this site I never knew there was a Gold Coast in Australia, but as an American I learned of the African Gold Coast in history class due to its importance in the slave trade.
