  1. Very interesting and informative quiz, Rex! I only got 3 correct, but heard lots of new and surprising information. I misread, or rather misunderstood, #7 “Which is the MOST populated state?” to mean “Which is the most DENSELY populated state?” and chose NY 🙂

    • LOL…I can understand that mistake. That it is the state with the highest population, the answer isn’t really surprising. California is also the third largest state, with lots of major seaports. Most of the population of NY, if I’m not mistaken, is concentrated in NYC.

      I plan on writing about one of these questions. I was even surprised when I learned about it, and I follow such things. That is, I’ll be writing about the state that has the smallest National Park, or rather, I’ll be writing about the park. Having grown up in a national park, I try to keep atop national parks and monuments.
