Geography Quiz!


(Need for a quiz here was pointed out by a reader)

First commenter with 3 correct answers will win one of these.

1. What is the world’s largest island in a body of fresh water?

2. Name the states that share a boundary with Rhode Island. No peeking!

3. This I borrowed from Click and Clack’s Puzzler. I only heard it just before they gave the answer and I guessed wrong. If you heard the answer on the radio, please disqualify yourself.

You are in a city in the USA. You travel due north until you arrive in the next state, which is state X. You return to the city. Then you travel due west until you arrive in the next state. It is again state X. You return to the city. Then you travel due south until you arrive in the next state. State X again. You return to the city. Then you travel due east until you arrive in the next state and yet again reach state X. The first state boundary you reach whether you travel North, West, South or East is the same state. Where are you?

    1. Manitoulin in Lake Huron

    2. Connecticut + Massachusetts

    3. My guess is Hawaii, although I am very curious to hear the answer. I re-read this question more times than I’d care to admit and I still don’t feel confident. I hope it has something to do with the curvature of the earth.
