Question 5 is very poorly worded. If the question was "Borders only one country" then the answer would be South Korea. However, this is not how question 5 is worded. The inclusion of "other" infers not including the "other" Korea, in which case the correct answer should actually be North Korea.

North Korea borders 3 countries, so there's no way to correctly interpret that question and arrive at North Korea. Nevertheless, I can see that some people might be confused so I changed the wording slightly.
