About This Quiz

Ugh, geography! It wasn't that fun when we had to learn about rocks and soil, ice and snow or hurricanes and the atmosphere. It was fun, however, when we were challenged to learn about the countries in the world. Were you taught that Australia was an island continent? Is that still true today? Do you know where Djibouti is or on which continent it's located? And can you name at least two countries that are on both the European and Asian continents? You see, geography is fun when you can be challenged, so we're challenging you today to find out how many of the world's countries you actually know. 

Will you pass this test with flying colors by telling us that Russia, which is located in Europe and Asia, covers the most time zones? Will you be able to tell us that Canada has the most lakes and has a red and white flag, the same colors as Japan's (minus the leaf)? Or will you be confused when we ask you about Turkey because you think it's a bird and not a country? 

There's only one way to find out if you'll ace or fail our test and that's by taking it. So go ahead and get started because it's time to test your world countries knowledge!
