Before you make a comment, please research the boundaries of the oceans.
Here is a good place to start:
When, after you engaged in such an argument, someone comes along and disparages your source without good reason and without presenting any evidence to the contrary or a compelling counter-argument, this is an appropriate time to respond with condescension.
It is either a sea which is part of an ocean, or else it is a big lake.
So you're saying it's just a big lake?
I think that would trigger Europeans just as equally.
Not sure which one counts for the Pacific, but either New Caledonia (special status) or French Polynesia and Wallis et Futuna (overseas collectivities) works.
Even without their mainland, France would still border the Atlantic (Caribbean sea) through, at least, French Guiana, Guadeloupe and Martinique (overseas regions).
But what 'external region' of France borders the Pacific? French Polynesia and Wallis and Futuna are semi-autonomous 'overseas collectivities', New Caledonia is an 'autonomous territory' and no other French territory borders the Pacific. Surely these are France's Guams rather than Hawaiis?
I always assumed this was the case and every Wikipedia article seems to confirm this as well.
2) I know that the Timor Sea is included as part of the Indian Ocean in the 2002 draft of IHO's Limits of Oceans and Seas, but in the third edition (the one still in force) this is not the case and the Indian Ocean does not reach as far as Timor-Leste (and even if you choose to ignore this point you should at least fix TL's subscript, because TL does not border the Flores Sea).
3) While Argentina and Chile are both correct answers, the Straits of Magellan have nothing to do with it. Those are entirely Chilean and entirely Pacific, so they are neither Argentina's reason for bordering the Pacific nor Chile's reason for bordering the Atlantic. Argentina borders the Pacific thanks to the Beagle Channel, and Chile borders the Atlantic thanks to its territory east of Cape Horn.
