As soon as I saw that one had 7+ states, I automatically knew it would be Tennessee. Didn't even have to think about it.

I know you're not including maritime borders but Michigan also shares maritime borders with Illinois and Minnesota across Lakes Michigan and Superior respectively which appear to be the only cases of maritime-only borders between two states.

New York and Rhode Island also share a maritime border. That being said, it would be pretty pedantic even for the standards of this site to include it.

Alabama and Georgia also border Tennessee.

But the quiz only accepted the answer of Florida.

It's surprising that california and delaware border the same number of states. Goes to show how compact New England is

As a Michigander, it hurts me to see so few people knowing where our state even is.
