I'm pretty sure the country's official name is "Bosnia & Herzegovina," but I was thinking the same thing.

Of course, the full name is much longer - but the quiz asks for "common English name," and in English-speaking countries, the name most commonly used is the abbreviated version "Bosnia."

Freestatebear, by that logic, Antigua and Barbuda should just be Antigua, and Sao Tome and Principe should just be Sao Tome. The full name of the country is Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

That's a tough one. I think there a few cases with "and" countries in which there is a diminutive partner that gets lost in "common" - and often formal - conversation, much to the consternation of people from Barbuda, Herzegovina, Labrador, and so on. This is different, I think, than dropping "Darussalam" from Brunei or the things that are sometimes used to distinguish one thing, or a part of a thing, from another (as in Congo, Micronesia, Macedonia, the U.S., etc.).

According to the sources above, Cyprus and Turkey are both part of Asia as they are east of the Caucasus mountains. However, because of their proximity regarding trade, it is easier to be part of the EU so they are accepted there. Russia is considered part of Europe, however even though more of the country is on the East side of the Caucasus. Bizarre,

All this quizzes continue to put Cyprus in Asia, it is not. All my Cypriot friends are baffled by this. It is, and always has been (check ancient history) European. Can we change this please?

It means it is in Asia geographically, not culturally. If we adhered to this Madagascar would be in Asia.

Cyprus has never been considered part of Asia; it's part of the European Union and has the Euro as its currency. It is close to both Greece and the European part of Turkey and is definitely part of Europe!!

I would say it is Eurasian, but then someone would argue that it should be in Africa. I saw somebody suggest that it was in South America in a comment on a different quiz, and I think that is the best answer. Anybody else for team South America?

Am I the only one that thinks this quiz needs more time or have they shortened it ? You need some time to picture the continents/countries. It is not like it is basic knowledge which countries have 6 letters, you have to check it.

and in response for future comments like "just because you are dumb doesnt mean the timer needs to be raised for everyone" etc. I have done other quizes that werent my area of expertise, where I had absolutely no idea and didnt even get a quarter right and never ask for more time. If I dont know it I dont know it, but I think there should be time to think.
