I would have thrown India in as a possible answer for the Buddha birth question (instead of, say Vietnam). It might have gotten a lot of votes.

It also would have been terribly confusing, because the area was in India then, but is in Nepal now.

The part that does border Afghanistan is recognized as Pakistani on Jetpunk.

I don't think India controls any territory bordering Afghanistan, and Jetpunk's policy seems to be mostly based on that. I'd probably have put Kazakhstan/Kyrgyzstan as an option instead of India to avoid appearing to make a political statement though.

Jammu and Kashmir is clearly Indian. I don't understand why most American maps don't acknowledge this fact. JetPunk should appropriately change all the maps, or I will take it that Mr Quizmaster is pro-China and/or pro-Pakistan. ;-)

I think it's JetPunk policy though. And in many maps, they split it in between, where the part that is Indian does not border Afghanistan. Also, I take it as though YOU are pro-India. ;-)

As @AlexThirkell says, it may not be ambiguous by Jetpunk's pragmatic approach, but it feels like an unnecessary technicality to introduce regarding a border which is in dispute. On a quiz like this, it would be better to stay away from disputable "incorrect" answers. Kyrgyzstan would be a great alternative.

I think technically Oman is a sultanate, not a monarchy (which would have a king).

I think sultans are classed as monarchs, just not as kings.
