The part of Turkey in Europe has 11 million people, 14% of its total population, and Turkey overall is 82% Islamic. Not sure how that would be worked into the statistics here.

Answers 1-6 and #8 are just the countries in Europe closest to Turkey. They all had territory that was part of the Ottoman Empire. The only reason that Greece isn't on the list is because of the population exchanges that took place after Greek nationalists succeeding in breaking away from the empire.

Answers 7 and 9-11 are here because of immigration. #7 mostly because of large numbers of immigrants from their former empire in North Africa, 9-11 because they are countries with small populations that receive a disproportionate number of Muslim immigrants.

The answers have changed but the quiz is still easy. Now the first seven are all countries that are close to Turkey that have territory that used to be Ottoman-controlled, and the last three are countries that have received a disproportionately high amount of Muslim immigration.

I deleted practically all the comments on this quiz. It's a controversial topic, so if you decide to post please be extra polite. And both sides of the "argument" were equally impolite, so please don't take this as evidence that your "side" is right.

In Russia it varies widely depending on methodology. Some people count simply "traditionally Muslim ethnicities", on the other hand there were some detailed researches asking also about practising a religion and including categories such as spiritual but not religious, religious but not organized (belonging to any church) etc.

Is the 10-17% for Russia in the European part of Russia only, or in Russia as a whole? Funny that Russia, as a transcontinental country counts, but Turkey does not.

The argument for this is that most of Russian population is in Europe and most of Turkish population is in Asia.
