I would argue Laos has two syllables, at least in the UK we pronounce is a "Lay-os"

Level 60

I've never heard it called Lay-os - it's pronounced like 'louse' as far as I understand it. (100% brit!)

The 's' is actually silent

French people like to drop the 's' in 'Laos', but I would trust the Laotians to tell us how to pronounce it, and they pronounce the 's'.

Shouldn't Mali be included in the Ebola deaths question? It was my first thought simply since I focused on that area, but it didn't take it. But it apparently did have 6 deaths. Not many granted, but it took my answer of Nigeria, and they only had 8...

It should be 'has a currency called the Peso' rather than 'uses the Peso' - it's not as if they're the same currency or anything

How is Laos one syllable? Where I am from, it's definitely pronounced with two syllables.

Apr 2, 2020
Because the S is silent. It is properly pronounced the same way as 'loud' without the D.

An 's' wouldn't add a syllable. 'Pea' and 'Peas' both have 1 syllable. I think he means some people pronounce it La-os, I've heard both.

Not bad... for not bordering the US, should really state "within 100 miles but no LAND border with the US". Also good test-making skills: too many of the answers can be teased out by getting other answers right. Like country that ends with "y" (I didn't remember, but I just looked at the other answers and sure enough).
