Great idea, well done! If you consider the 'France-Netherlands' border on Sint Maarten then Netherlands-Luxembourg make the list, too

Thanks, I'll add a note for that - I don't count it, because I consider St. Maarten, Curacao and Aruba not as parts of the Netherlands.

btw: UAE and Yemen both border Oman, too (note that there's a "disputed" UAE-Qatar border, too)

Yes, of course. I had Oman in mind when creating the answers (if I had not thought about it, Qatar would have been an answer too), but apparently forgot about it afterward...

Fun quiz! Miniature weakness: You say 'the bordering column will fill automatically...', but e.g. when you type Nepal, nothing shows up. Or vice versa, when you supply the first country you kind of get the answer to the next one w/out actually knowing it. What you could do is make them type in the two countries together, and then make a hidden hint out of that. :)

With the new quiz editor improvements, this has now been resolved. Before I could only make it depend on one field, but now either of the two countries will light up the bordering countries
