  • 4. 

    Bolivia has access to any sea?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Bolivia does not have access to any sea. It is a landlocked country located in the heart of South America, surrounded by land on all sides. It lost its coastal territories to Chile in the War of the Pacific in the late 19th century. As a result, Bolivia has been without direct access to the sea ever since.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    Peru, Colombia, Venezuela and Brazil, are all the countries along the route of the Amazon river to the sea?

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, and Brazil are not all the countries along the route of the Amazon river to the sea. While Brazil does have a significant portion of the Amazon river within its borders, the river also flows through other countries such as Peru and Colombia. However, Venezuela does not have the Amazon river within its territory. Therefore, not all of the mentioned countries are along the route of the Amazon river to the sea.
