Having a map (even an empty one) makes it easier to identify what countries are missing...so yeah too easy for us geography nerds who don't even need a map

What about Lesotho and Swaziland ? They are surrounded by South Africa. So they must be in the southern part?

If there was a quiz for the countries in the southern hemisphere taking up the least area then Swaziland and Lesotho would be there lol

It seems that the geography quizzes generate such a high % of correct responses that they might be solved "in advance" (with maps or whatever) by a significant number of respondents. The results just aren't consistent with quizzes on other topics where this is not possible. Perhaps the geography quiz titles and headings could be less specific until the "Start Quiz" is activated.

There are a lot of geography nerds on here and once you mastered the Countries of the World quiz and are actually able to place a fair amount of them on that map quizzes like this one are rather easy. Even without trying to solve it in advance.

What about Uruguay? If Brazil and Paraguay are included, so should be Uruguay. And idrill is right: in the instructions it doesn't say anything about "biggest coutries". So, Swaziland and Lesotho should also be in the quizz.

Hey, Quizmaster. This quiz could be completely updated for accuracy with this area tool. For example, I used this to calculate Brazil's Southern Hemisphere area as 7,887,350. This is almost 300,000km off of your estimate! It's a simple tool and correcting it wouldn't be too much of a pain :)

DRC: 1,620,885 km2
