Another quiz where i'd love to see the split between the scores of those who take the quiz and are from North America and those from the rest of the world. I suspect the latter would score a lot lower.

I'm from germany and had 9/10. I assumed, that the states in the west of the US are the newest. But I missed Oklahoma.

Oklahoma was reserved as Native American territory for a long time, which is why it became a state a lot later than the other states in that region.

It's really not too difficult, once you realise that the western/harder to settle states are generally newer. That being said I didn't have much time left on the clock when I finished.

I only knew Hawaii and Alaska for certain aswell, had to guess the rest. Though I knew to avoid the east and texas and california.

That doesnt immediately make it easy like someone mentioned above, cause then you have to know which ones are there. Knowing where they are is actually the easy part (for a non USAer) not "once you know it is in the west it's easy"
