A Trick Tricky Geography Quiz
Terra Incognita is Latin for 'Land Unknown.' That's what they used to put on maps of unexplored territory. Very little of the Earth's lands are incognita these days. Still, how well do you know the details? Take the quiz and test yourself.
Sometimes the geography is tricky, sometimes the question is tricky, and sometimes the answer is tricky. Sometimes by 'tricky' I mean 'silly,' though the reader might take it to mean 'stupid.' Whatever the case may be, you may find it all curious if trivial.
