The other 16 countries that have Arabic as an official language are for the most part also tiny or at least not very populous.

Not very tiny - about twice the size (in both area and population) of Ireland, for example

I have the percent of Arabic speakers in Oman as 88.6% according to Wikipedia. This is probably wrong, so what source are you using?

the percentage does not really matter. The total in oman is 2.5 million so not enough to make this list.

Weird how half of these are in africa and not he middle east :o. Lately ( i believe through this site) I learned arabic was spoken in egypt. BUt had no idea about the other countries, and was also surprised that not the entire middle east was considered as arabic speaking. Learned something knew. (will now have to look up what languages they speak in morocco though, cause we call it marokkaans.)

if besides moroccan/marrokaans I had to guess another language I would have said berber

What source are you using? Because for saudi Arabia I get more like 90%. 27 million instead of 17 million native arabic speakers.

(or a typo? accidentally used a 1 instead of 2 ?)

I assume it includes the millions of expats from the Philippines, India, Pakistan, the USA, Indonesia, Bangladesh, etc - almost none of which speak Arabic - who make up more than 30% of the population of the country.

2019 update: The percentages used on this quiz should be considered to be estimates. The Wikipedia article for this topic is a mess with some very wrong percentages for Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, and Yemen, and probably other countries too. I did my best to find a percentage that makes sense, but there is simply not accurate data to be found.

Hey Quizmaster, do you think we could have the ability to switch the type of quiz we are making (i.e. normal, picture, and multiple choice) as we are making it. I cannot tell you how many times I have been trying to make a picture quiz, and I am 5 minutes in and I realize I am making a normal, not picture, quiz. You do not have to, but I think it would be a nice feature.
