The Seychelles are long and straggly so this one took a while! The nearest inhabited island seems to be Desroches, 1239 km / 770 miles off the continental coast at Somalia. If we had included uninhabited islands in this quiz. then Aldabra Atoll, 628 km / 390 miles off Mozambique, would have put Seychelles on the list. (We use "inhabited" to refer to an ordinary permanent population; there is a scientific research station on Aldabra).

That was fun! I would have left off the faroe islands, but otherwise great. Took me ages to think of the USA - silly me.

Please read the instructions, and thanks for the star! (Some homework for you: Is the Kingdom of Denmark, or the Country of Denmark, a country? From there, it should be pretty obvious what the Faroe Islands must be).

Hmmm... shouldn't Gibraltar disqualify the UK?
