Hi Marlis,

Very good quiz,if general vicinity is good enough for answers, I did pretty well. Brazil IS a country to the south of Nicaragua! I'd love the pdf so I can give this to my kids soon. We took the US Citizenship quiz together last night after dinner, another good one. University professors who give it to their students regularly find that they mostly fail it.

Keep up the high standards, someone has to!
