When we think of the continent of North America, we think of the "big three" nations: the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Actually, 20 other independent nations are considered part of the continent. Some have very long, combined names like Antigua & Barbuda, St. Kitts & Nevis, St. Vincent & The Grenadines, and Trinidad & Tobago. That leaves sixteen. How many of those can you name? You've got 8 minutes to find out, starting with the moment you key in your first answer.

Per the 2010 Census, of the 100 most populated cities in the United States, exactly TEN of them have names that begin with the letter C. Three of them are located in the same state; three others have two-word names; and two others are located in East Coast states. (Sorry, those are all the hints you'll get from me.)

You'll have five minutes to take the quiz, and the clock starts when you key in your first entry. (State names are not required; just the city.) Good luck!
