You could also ask: number of oceans Andorra has access to, or number of Nobel prizes, or number of astronauts.
I'm sorry Quizmaster if I shouldn't have marked this comment as "containing a correction or suggestion" but I would like to bring this to the attention of Aaron and I don't know how else I can do it :)
Just wanted to say: you ain't foolin' noone, Andorra!
Catalan speakers usually find it easier to learn English than Spanish speakers, because Catalan has a wider range of vowel sounds than Spanish - not as many as English but way more than the very few that Spanish has. So pronunciation-wise it's a big difference.
And the difference between language and dialect is often a political one, as another commenter pointed out, but in this case the fact is, even if they share a "common ancestor" in Latin, one is not derived from the other. Catalan evolved from the Occitan romance, same as modern Occitan and Friulian, whereas Spanish derives from the Iberian romance, same as Galician-Portuguese.
