The "Countries by Borders" quiz considers the sandy border that appears at low tide.

And there's oodles of controversy about that consideration in the comments for that quiz.

My mistake. This should have been edited out and now has been. The official position of JetPunk is that Sri Lanka and India do not border each other.

Didn't realise this was the official position on this. Will keep in mind for the future, thanks.

There is no position to be had, sri lanka has not been connected to india for centuries, not since the 15th century. There is no matter of opinion in this case as in some other cases.

There are bits and pieces left, but no real connection, no matter the tide.

India and Sri Lanka don't share a "land border" but they do share a "marine border" because of their proximity.

@Sifhraven, there is a little bit of ambiguity. The claim is not that the island of Sri Lanka borders India, but that the country, which includes many small islands, does. The border between the countries supposedly crosses one of the islands in Adam's Bridge between Sri Lanka and Pamban Island in India, creating a land bridge between the countries somewhat analagous to the border between Saudi Arabia and Bahrain on Middle Island. The ambiguity comes in because that border is not well defined. Some claim it is at Dhanushkodi on Pamban Island, some claim it's so far down the tip of that island that it's only above water at low tide, and some claim it's on one of the other islets between there and Mannar Island.

@plattitude except there is no ambiguity. While looking on the internet and using 'some claim' repeatedly is all well and good, here in Sri Lanka and over in India the two governments state that there is no land border.

Every single country I missed has been guessed by 85% or more of takers. Can't believe how stupid I am.

I honestly thought that Vietnam would be on this quiz!
