It's a really far stretch to say the Portuguese or most of the six countries "colonized" Ghana. They really just stuck to their trade ports and conflict was with other Europeans, not locals. It was the British who fully colonized Ghana.

'Shocking' river Volta. Haha. It reminds me a former (?) name of Burkina Faso, which is Upper Volta.

ANY line running north-south between the Earth's poles and along the Earth's surface is a meridian. The one that passes through Greenwich is the Prime Meridian.

Not sure but do you emigrate from and immigrate to, as opposed to how it is phrased in the quiz.

it’s not really an exact science and both are used nearly interchangeably in english, but emigration has the emphasis on leaving a place (to go somewhere else), and immigration is more to do with entering the new place. however, du bois did still emigrate with ghana as the destination, so either is probably fine.
