Thanks for all the comments. However, after doing a bit of research, according to this Wikipedia page, there is a land border between Sri Lanka and India, abeit a very small one. Cyprus has also got a small land border between itself and the UK. Finally, smiko, Faroe Islands is not a country (what I presume you meant by that).

Wasn't aware of that place (Dhanushkodi). I guess it counts. Though one more cyclone and/or a couple decades more of global warming and it ought to be gone.

There is no land border with India. If you are referring to Adam's Bridge, it hasn't been above sea level since the 1400's. Sri Lanka is an island nation with no land borders. If you want to be accurate, fix your quiz. If you don't care that your quiz is incorrect, leave it as is.

Cyprus also borders the unrecognized state of Northern Cyprus.

The land border between India and Sri Lanka is 45 m long (less than a city block and is all sand. In all likelihood its covered by water during an especially high tide and one good cyclone will wipe it out. Hardly qualifies as a land border.

Fine quiz though basically the same as the island countries quiz which was already done, except +Australia and -Hispaniola -British Isles. I was also going to bring up Sri Lanka and Cyprus. I'm also not sure Rama's Bridge should count as a land border. I don't think that it is wholly above water. and Cyprus I assumed you were counting Northern Cyprus as a border not the UK. If Cyprus borders the UK than do Cuba and Bahrain both border the USA? They both have American military bases.

Technically Bahrain shares a land border with Saudi Arabia with the King Fahd Causeway. Where's Sri Lanka in this Quiz?

I don't think that counts because that is an artificial island. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/King_Fahd_Causeway#Border_station

Apparently Sri Lanka has 45 metre border with India. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dhanushkodi#Geography

Cyprus and Sri Lanka are missing. Wikipedia can sometimes be wrong, you know?

I understand by border, there should be an inmigration office on both sides. Maybe you can take that as a parameter for your quizz

Not useful. You can have no land border but immigration on both sides of a bridge, it might be very short and inaccessible, or closed (Morocco-Algeria) or border control abolished (Schengen)
