So many mistakes.

Croatia, Israel, Azerbaijan, Tunisia, Guatemala, Ecuador, Zimbabwe, Burkina Faso, Slovakia all had less than 5 million people in 1960, meanwhile Mali's population is estimated at about 5.2 million in 1960.

Some of these mistakes are forgivable, as the numbers are really close(Burkina Faso is estimated at around 4.8 million people in 1960); However, most are not. Some of these countries had fewer than 4 million people(Azerbaijan, Zimbabwe) at the time and Israel barely had 2 million! Some of these countries still have fewer than 5 million people TODAY!(Croatia, Slovakia)

Please fix your quiz, this is a mess.
