This quiz takes repeated attempts to memorize the largest rivers in the world. Took me nearly 80 tries to remember all 51 listed herein. There are a few shortcuts. Be sure to spell the Yenisei or Angara river correctly for the merge of the two rivers. In most cases where there were two rivers merging either is accepted and the rest is filled in.

Quizmaster didn't choose it, he has another version he created that he uses that ties to Wikipedia vs. a more substantiated US Dept of Natural Resources. Of course everything on Wikipedia is correct *wink*
