    Norway is ____ of Sweden.

    Explanation
    Norway is west of Sweden. This means that Norway is located in the western direction in relation to Sweden. The word "west" is used to indicate the direction or position of Norway in relation to Sweden. The capitalization of "West" in the answer is likely a typographical error, as it should not be capitalized unless it is at the beginning of a sentence.

    Explanation
    Denmark is above Germany geographically. It is located in Northern Europe and shares a land border with Germany. The word "denmark" is written twice in the answer, which might be a typo or redundancy. However, it does not affect the explanation of Denmark being above Germany.

    The Baltic Sea is east of the Scandinavian Peninsula.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The Baltic Sea is indeed located east of the Scandinavian Peninsula. The Scandinavian Peninsula is a large peninsula in Northern Europe, which includes the countries of Norway and Sweden. The Baltic Sea is situated to the east of this peninsula, separating it from countries like Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Poland. Therefore, the statement is true.

    Neither the Rhine nor Elbe rivers run through Germany.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the Rhine river does run through Germany. It is one of the longest and most important rivers in Europe, flowing through Switzerland, Germany, France, and the Netherlands. The Elbe river also runs through Germany, originating in the Czech Republic and flowing through Germany before reaching the North Sea. Therefore, both the Rhine and Elbe rivers run through Germany, making the statement false.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false because the Mediterranean Sea is actually south of Italy. Italy is located in southern Europe and is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea on its western, southern, and eastern coasts.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    Corsica and ________ (Monaco) are south of the Alps mountains.

    Correct Answer
    Sardinia, sardinia
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "Sardinia, sardinia". Corsica and Sardinia are both islands located in the Mediterranean Sea, south of the Alps mountains. Monaco, on the other hand, is a city-state located on the French Riviera, but it is not south of the Alps mountains. Therefore, the missing word in the sentence should be "Sardinia" to complete the statement correctly.
