    • The question is which one is not true about the country’s land area in comparison to other famous structures’ land areas.

      All other 3 are correct except one. It should be 75 White Houses only to tantamount 1 Antigua and Barbuda’s total land area.

      Your score is not bad at all, at least u made it half Norman..Hope u had fun and keep posted for my next country quiz which is Argentina.
