About This Quiz

Ready for takeoff? Rather than 80 days, you're geared up to go around the world in 35 questions. When it comes to world geography, you might be able to identify which part of the world you're from quickly, but what about the other countries? From Guyana to Singapore, can you figure out which part of the world these countries are in?

The world is a vast place. Split by the imaginary lines of the Prime Meridian and Equator, the world can easily be split into northern, southern, eastern, and western hemispheres. Further within these hemispheres, you'd find the seven continents, six of which are habitable. Although it might be easy to recognize the names of North America, South America, Europe, Africa, Asia, and Australia, could you narrow down their locations on a map? Delving even deeper, the world's continents amount to 197 countries. Could you pinpoint these countries to a spot on a map?

Everyone is probably aware that the highly-visited country of France is in Europe, but do you know if it's a Western or Eastern European country? You might be aware of island areas such as the Caribbean, West Indies, and Oceania, but could you identify some of their countries? 

There's only one way to find out! Today, we're putting your geography knowledge to the test! Can you pilot this quiz to a perfect score or will you be forced to touch down for an early landing?
