Sikkim was close! It actually gained proper independence mid 1947 when India succeeded, but this map is from just before the partition.

I wish I would have typed France for French Indochina instead of typing Indochina. Never heard of Pondicherry...

Typing France and Portugal gives the least guessed ones. I'm surprised not many people have done that.

What's about Diu and Damão, Dadra and Nagar Haveli? Goa is not the country - it's Portugal or Portugese India, to be more precise.

Burma was seperated from British Raj in 1936. Ceylon(Sri Lanka) was never a part of British Raj. Sikkim's sovereignity is disputed, event though it was a princely state with British suzerainity.

My source includes them, regardless of how intergrated they were with what is now India, Bangladesh and Pakistan. Yes, Sikkim was a princely state, but most princely states in the subcontinent during this era had limited autonomy, such as Manipur and Hyderabad. Bhutan was a princely state, but it had more recognition and legitimacy than others.

Ugh, got all but one. Typed Puducherry at the very end but didn't have time to enter the old name when it wasn't accepted. Fun quiz though!
