French Guiana is not a territory, it's a department of France, their equivalent of a US state. FG is to France as Hawaii is to the US - neither are territories, they are just not connected to the rest of their country. (I learned that on this site - thank you, French Jetpunkers.)

I'd suggest using a different answer for that one (not only because it's the only one I got wrong!). The argument might be that it's only India that might not border Afghanistan, but it'd be a lot less messy if Kyrgyzstan (or something) was substituted.

Lithuania only touches Russia with Kaliningrad, so if you forget that Kaliningrad is part of Russia, you would guess that Lithuania is the answer.

Nice. I was about to say, in which world is that an alphabetical order. I managed to remember that Guyana is the largest one bordering Venezuela and I always just guess 50:50 for the other two. Luckily, I didn't need to for this quiz.

French Guiana is like Alaska or Hawaii for the United States. French Polynesia is more like Guam or Puerto Rico. Alaska and Hawaii are as much states as Ohio and Maryland are. French Guiana has the same status as Normandy or Corsica.

I'm not trying to make excuses for the only one I got wrong, but I just want to say that depending on who you ask Afghanistan does border India. I'm not trying to get you to change the quiz or claim I'm right or anything, I am aware that Pakistan does have de facto control over the western part of Kashmir, I'm just warning about the potential politically-fueled sh*tstorm.

@Quizmaster

QM, India has got back Kashmir and now the Indian shape has changed. I am an Indian and we have always learnt it bordering Afghanistan. The Kashmir belongs to India and that makes many changes like K2's location which is now India and India having another border (Afghanistan). And this quiz interferes too much in the disputed territory like q2 and q10. Why not update the shape of India and try to prevent other quizzes with this minor mistake?

JetPunk follows de-facto control. India can claim Pakistani Kashmir all it wants, but it doesn't have any control over it whatsoever.

India has no control over Pakistani Kashmir, it can claim it all it wants but had 0 control over it therefore it's Pakistani, and if you believe that india controls western kashmir than pakistan would have no border with china which makes 0 sense
