Quiz: Ultimate Trivia Test On Geography! - Quiz

This quiz is the ultimate trivia test on geography! A large portion of the earth is covered by water and this puts some emphasis on why it is important to learn more about coastal regions as a whole. Just how much do you know about lagoons and areas around them? This quiz will help you shed some light to that. Do give it a try and see what more you might learn!
