Because Seychelles is a smaller nation than Comoros and Mauritius. And yes, I too was surprised to see Comoros, Vanuatu, Namibia, Tuvalu, Cape Verde and Mauritius not on there.

Far from being on this quiz with a size of 2.586 square Kilometers (would be #32 here) and a population of 562,958 (would be #14 here). Next in Population would be Samoa (187,820) and next in area would be Singapore (716).
+1
level 65
Jan 20, 2020
Singapore is on the list. So did another country grow in size since your post? Edit: maybe the quiz used to have fewer answers? But singapore is currently nr 18 in size, that means the list used to stop at 17, which seems a weird cut off point.
+1
level 65
Jan 20, 2020
Correction. Currently nr 19, so cut off would have been 18, which us slightly less weird but still not common. Plus its size is not listed as 716 but 687. And the 20th one as 702. So looking at sizes, something with 716 km² would/could be next on the list.

So maybe he missed it was on there. Went looking for countries with areas more than 702 km² and found something which said singapore was 716. Btw this quiz seems to use land area (so lakes etc get deducted)

So he should have physically made the country smaller himself by digging away land so it could be on the list? Thats quite a lot of work for a quiz.. even if you disregard the paperwork involved.

Since I already have the tab open: Vanuatu would be 39th (So even lower than Jamaica which sits at 36) with an area of approximately 1200 km²
