With the successful response about Canada, I thought I’d ask about the United States. It seemed not many people were very knowledgeable about Canada, unless they lived there. Of course, most of my readers are Americans, so why not see what they know about their own country? And what do other people know about the USA? So, without looking up the information, I’d like you to answer the following questions. No cheating, please!
- What’s the capital of the United States?
- What are the three largest cities in the US by metropolitan area population?
- What’s the population of the US?
- How many states are there?
- What is the largest state by area?
- Which state has the smallest population?
- If you go directly south from Detroit, where do you end up?
I will be marking your answers, just like I’ll be marking the Canada answers. If you don’t do well, then you can learn a lot about the United States with Geography Quick Facts, coming soon!
