Calling all geography lovers! We aren't going to go into anything complex. Instead, we're keeping it simple for you with a quiz about the countries of the world. As kids, we were taught that there were seven continents: Africa, Antarctica, Asia, Australia, Europe, North America and South America. In these continents exists every country known to man. 

While some continents like Australia and Antarctica only have a few nations, others like Africa, Asia, and Europe have many (54, 48 and 50 respectively). What we want to know is whether you can match the country to its continent.

And while you may think that this will be a relatively easy task, we're going to try to trip you up with countries that exist in more than one continent. Take for example Eurasia (you guessed it: Europe and Asia), do you know that Turkey, Georgia, Russia and a few other countries have cities on both continents? What answer will you choose then?  

If you think that this is going to be one of those throwaway quizzes, then you better think again. Will your knowledge end up rivaling Google Maps? Or should you just stick to learning the countries in your continent? Let's find out!
