The shortest name for an actual geographic place is:
A. Yt. A village name often found in rural parts of North Africa, where sadly, years of drought have made vowels extremely scarce. B. Å. It may be one letter, but do you know how to say it, smarty-pants?
C. Uh. A town in South Australia, so-called because nobody could remember the original name, Ozenkadnook.
D. Zed. A small city in Florida, named after the way its many British-born residents pronounce the last letter in the alphabet.
Answer: B. In Sweden, there are at least eight villages that go by the name Å, and plenty more in Norway and Denmark. In these Scandinavian languages, ‘Å’ means “small river.”

Which of these places has the largest number of active volcanoes in the world?
A. Indonesia. Residents regularly have to outrun lava.
B. Iceland. They should call it Fireland instead.
C. The teacher’s lounge. They’re always blowing their tops in there.
D. Disney World, near Orlando, Florida. But don’t worry, it’s only a show, folks.
ANSWER: A. Indonesia has a staggering 127 active volcanoes, many of which erupt regularly.
