Smallest to largest would not be the reverse order since the subject is SMALLEST state, right? So RI, being the smallest, rightly comes first.

It would be helpful to mention that the areas given are land areas. For example, the water portion of Maryland and Massachusetts both exceed 20%, and for Hawaii it exceeds 40%. Admittedly, I don't think the list would change - just the order of some of the entries.

... because you got 9/10?

Maybe because #10 is more than twice as big as #9? Seems like it is in a different class than the rest of these.

Jan 12, 2017
#2 is nearly twice as big as #1, and #3 is more than twice as big as #2. Cutting it off anywhere is arbitrary, and 10 seems to me a good enough number to use.

I mean, if we're counting Puerto Rico, then why not the US Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, etc. All are smaller than Rhode Island, none of which--like Puerto Rico--are states.

I have to agree. There are 4 other (inhabited) unincorporated territories of the US. if you're are counting PR because it is a commonwealth, so are the Northern Marianas. I totally support giving PR statehood if they want it, but I also support unambiguous JetPunk quiz questions :-)

Got New Jersey last. It may be one of the smaller states, but it is also one of the longest. Driving from New York City to Baltimore, Maryland you're in New Jersey for 2/3 of the ride.
