Love the image for this one. Why does Slovakia/Slovenia question ask about Mediterranean and not just Adriatic? Also it should say "Which of these borders" not "Which of the borders."

Good questions overall but I felt that the 'mate' on the Australian question was a bit cringeworthy.

Easy - many of these are countries with similar-ish names, but rarely confused with each other.

I assumed Mauritania and Mauritius would make an appearance. But we all know what "assume" does.

I think they meant also including the Atlantic Ocean. It’s not like Lesotho, which is completely land locked by South Africa.

Great quiz! Well-chosen pairs and distinguishing features. It's easy if you have some familiarity with the countries of the world, of course, as most regular Jetpunkers do; but these are in fact often confused by non-geography-enthusiasts, and there is space for quizzes of different difficulties here.

I might add Sweden and Switzerland.

I'm surprised that the Tigris/Euphrates question is the most missed. Those two are notorious, c'mon. Mesopotamia, anyone?
