I would argue Laos has two syllables, at least in the UK we pronounce is a "Lay-os"
+3
Level 60
Apr 9, 2019
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'.
+1
Level 53
Sep 18, 2020
Laotians? They are definently called Lao people
+2
Level 44
Dec 8, 2020
I think Lao = The Lao people group found within Indochina and surrounding area, and Laotian = A person from Laos.

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

Samoa is less than 100 miles away from American Samoa(USA territory)
+1
Level 44
Dec 8, 2020
That is true! Samoa is only 50 miles away from AS, so if that is true, Puerto Rico is also 70 miles away from the Dominican Rep. These need to be added or the question needs to be reworded.

How is Laos one syllable? Where I am from, it's definitely pronounced with two syllables.
+1
Level 73
Apr 2, 2020
Because the S is silent. It is properly pronounced the same way as 'loud' without the D.
+1
Level 65
Apr 9, 2020
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.

Jan 30, 2021
If the s is silent, it will still get 2 syllables:

La-o

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).
