Curious about the answer to "most languages spoken". What's the criteria? Because I have to imagine there are more unique languages spoken in "melting pot" countries like the USA.

Countries like PNG, Indonesia, and Vanuatu have little pockets of indigenous people who speak their own language.

PNG has over 800. Just including native languages, the US has roughly 100 something.

How about India? It has a lot of native languages. About how many people need to speak a language for it to be counted as a language for a language quiz?

It's debatable which country has the most, India would probably be in the top 5.

"Greatest source of foreign born residents of the Netherlands" - a similar question is on every quiz in this series and it always confuses the heck out of me. I still don't understand what it is asking. Could someone please word it differently for me so I can get it through my thick noggin, and maybe I'll remember next time?

I think it means that Morocco, Turkey and Indonesia are the three main sources of immigrants that go to the Netherlands

I also find the question confusing. It sounds like it is asking which countries grant Dutch passports (as when the Netherlands has a colony, or like France for all its colonies). The question should be better phrased "... living in the Netherlands"

Yes or differently put: Which country do foreigners living in the Netherlands come from the most.
