I think understanding the difference between average and median could help.

Check out the following link: https://realestate.wichita.edu/question/median-vs-average/

In this case, your result is higher than average but lower than median.

Missed just one, Morocco-Spain. I don't think that one is visible even with zoom, which makes it bloody hard to find when it's the only one you're missing.

Jan 31, 2023
It is visible. I had one left and couldn't seen any line, so I started clicking at random points and finally I happened to zoom at north Africa and saw these few little dots. When I moved a bit south, it showed Morocco-Algeria, so after a while I guessed that it must be Morocco-Spain :D

That's because there isn't one. Akrotiri and Dhekelia are British Overseas Territories, so not part of the United Kingdom. Same as for Gibraltar, which is why UK-Spain also isn't on here.

It took me 10 tries.

very special mindset required, trying to remember what I just typed instead of what to type afterwards and always looking at the map.

Looks like Saint Martin, an island split in twain between the Dutch constituency of Sint Maarten in the South and the French overseas collectivity of Saint-Martin in the North. Judging from the older comments, I’m pretty sure this quiz used to include that overseas border, but has since removed it, and the map just hasn’t been updated yet.

This is a great idea and a great quiz, but is there a way to do it with 2 text boxes? I mean copy/paste is ok, but it's still cumbersome. It would be so much better if you could type a country in one box, then start knocking out the bordering countries in the other box. As it is, I'm just too slow with the keyboard.

the only other quiz to work up to this is -the one for Europe since you already have this worked out

can you please make one for each continent to teach ourselves

can you please reorder the answers in alpha order by continent with separate headings to check when we get mixed up

very intricate instructional tool but way too busy and abstract to just crank out

since you have done all the work creating 6 diff ones with alternate lists with this as the grand finale will give you 5 more quizzes on your roster with many more stats for test takers and more would attempt as they master the others separately feeling ready for ultimate challenge - not much more work for you

value of Jet Punk -besides helping us all not go as crazy during pandemic -I bet numbers soared as we all got hooked.... the true value is the instructional value the accuracy of the information and the consistency with which it is presented re 196 nations and consistent use of abbreviations etc

also a big thank you!!!

Had one to go with one minute left. I couldn't see where it was at all. It was Botswana-Zambia. I knew it was the shortest land border, but even after the quiz was done and I zoomed in, it was maybe 2 pixels. Great quiz.

Please pretty please with a cherry on top

Can you please make these by continent first?

Both kinds all the borders and the ones where each country name clears all its borders?

This is such a good teaching tool but it is way too much in one go without a lot of practice learning by continent. I have Europe down thanks to that quiz available.

Asia?

Africa?

NA and SA are pretty easy they can be together..

Please please please

Isn't it just a matter of grouping and separating the data you already have?

Well thank you

Hi - thanks for the suggestion, I'll keep it in mind but I am not sure when I will be able to do those versions. Feel free to copy this quiz and adapt it to single continents if you like, that might be quicker!

P l e a s e

cut this up past Europe

The Americas together is fine

but Asia

Africa and

Oceania need to be separated, too -please.

I have no idea how you do this and I cannot imagine that it is easy, but it seems like the world map is the worst and the date sets that are linked could be separated into different files for learning. It is too confusing with the whole world up unless we all get really good at each continent separately please!

Also, while it is interesting to note the length of the borders it does not help one solve the puzzle. If each continent had a separate list of related borders it would be a good reference for which little squiggles are left. It would also be interesting to see how many international borders there are by continent.

Just an idea. Interesting. Could be more manageable by continent and this could be the final assault to the top of the international border mountain! Thank you

This took me many attempts to complete... purely because I kept tackling Europe last. Finally completed it by doing Europe first.
