Nice idea! How about ten answers? You can easily fit Sri Lanka, Taiwan, and Solomon Islands to give it a challenge and 10 answers :)

Every time an easy quiz shows up there's at least someone complaining about it. Why can't we have a couple of easy ones?

This quiz isn't even easy unless you're a geography nerd. Give this to an average person on the street and see how many they get!

Well, since we’re all geography nerds here, I think the expansion to 10 and the inclusion of a harder answer is great!

Doesn't Cuba have a border with the USA (Guantanamo Bay)?
+1
Level 71
Feb 28, 2017
Guantanamo is leased land. Cuba never cashes the check, but every year one is sent. So, it is still sovereign territory of the nation of Cuba, leased by another country.
+1
Level 43
Feb 28, 2017
They could cash the check it still wouldn't be a border. The US just rent a place according to an old contract Cuba no longer recognizes. It's just a case of a landlord wanting the guy out and Guantanamo Bay isn't a US territory. It's just a military base on foreign soil like the US hold others around the world.
