Country name question
So Nikita and I were having dinner together and asking each other puzzles. One we came up with was “How many countries can you name that starts and ends with the same letter”? Each and every one that we came up with – Albania, Algeria, Argentina, Australia, Austria… were with “A”. We could not find a single non-“A” country. Can you? (meaning country names that start and end with the same letter and it is not A)
Seychelles 🙂 even though the official name starts with Republic of Seychelles.
Veena, that is good. Really good!
I guess “S” is your category? 🙂
Tibet If it is a real country any more.
Cheryl, Tibet is not recognized as a country
Richa, that should count. Good one!
Central African Republic
Warsaw in Poland
Yes, Rajib – there are a few from/to S – St Kitts & Nevis, St Vincent and the Grenadines, and a few other island nations…
Some of the smaller federal island-states in West Indies, like St Kitts
but the pick in this set is definitely Veena’s Seychelles
Our very own Erode in South India
Czech Republic, Central African Republic
Mizoram, Dhanbad. Though they r not country.1st one is a state of India,2nd is a district of Jharkhand of India.
Deutschland ! 😉
Eire – the native name for Ireland
Indian towns have population greater than or equal to countries abroad 🙂
Cheating a bit: Central African Republic
and Czech Republic, Solomon Islands.
If it is a continent instead of a country, then it would have been Europe 🙂
