Okay trivia fans. Here is the penultimate portion of the weekly CNN Travel Quiz. This weeks topic is countries. I think this will be an interesting topic. Don’t let the name CNN stop you from trying it. I don’t think there are any political questions here.
The only rules are don’t get the answers from Google or CNN, but asking friends and family is okay.
I am taking the quiz and reporting my score in parentheses after each question. √ means I got it right. X means I missed it. Multiple
guess choice questions show the percentage correct.
You can answer some or all questions in the comments (preferred) or take the quiz in your head.
1.What do Colombia, Sao Tome & Principe, Gabon, Uganda, Maldives, and Kiribati have in common? (X)
2. What three Asian countries topped the list in April 2020 for the most powerful passports for visa-free travel, according to the Henley Passport Index? I posted about Passport Power in April.
3. Which country has the most official languages? (X This answer was surprising.)
4. Four red, white, and blue flags, four different countries. Name them.
(50% should have done better here)
5. What happened in Samoa and Tokelau on December 30, 2011? (X)
6. Which country changed its name to eSwatini in 2018? (X)
7. Identify these countries from their outlines.

8. Which country is the world’s newest? (X)
9. These frontiers divide areas claimed by which pairs of countries? The Line of Control; b. The Demilitarized Zone; c. The 49th Parallel. (33%)
10. Which country is surrounded the the north, east and south by Senegal? (X)
This quiz was harder than I expected. I hope you do better than the “worldtraveler.” Good luck!
