  1. I just got 9 – your definition of a pass! I’m amazed at #1, as I always thought DRC was the largest 🙂
    BTW it’s going to take you like 3 years to work your way through the alphabet of countries at the rate of one a week. Someone might be tempted to start at the other end 😮

    • Thanks for playing Norman and congrats for passing my quiz…DRC is only second btw…Algeria is 14k+ sq. mi. larger than the DRC when it comes to land mass…Haha yeah it may take too long, but I’m not in a hurry, just take some time in doing all these countries’ quizzes…We can do it! 🙂
