Tough one. Managed to get 11. If I'd had another 30 seconds would have got 15 or 16. Another 2 minutes and maybe would have got them all except maybe Iraq or Bosnia.

I forgot I'd taken this before. Took it again and scored 15 this time, better than last time, though I forgot Gambia and Lithuania which I got the 1st time around, and I got Iraq and Bosnia this time. I think this one's definitely harder than the longest coastlines quiz.

Forgot I had taken this twice and took it a third time. :P This time I got 15 again, though I missed different ones. The only two I've never got were Belgium and Slovenia. Belgium is always a surprise to me. Haha.

For this quiz we are using the World Factbook data instead of our own data because there were some problems in our data with Singapore, Gambia, and D. R. Congo do to inaccurate coastline resolution.

The seas help a lot. The only one I missed was Gulf of Aqaba, had no idea where that is.

The Gulf of Aqaba is hard to remember because it is so near to two much more talked about waterways: the Red Sea and Suez Canal.

What about Bahrain, surely it has a smaller coastline than some of these countries i.e. Lithuania.

Bahrain has many islands with rugged coastlines, so it is longer than it looks
