Round 6: Odd One Out
Teacher says: Round 6 is called Odd One Out, and you will be asked about countries around the world. You will be given a choice of three answers, and you must choose the one answer that does not belong. Here is an example: Which country does not border the Pacific Ocean—United States, Mexico, or France? The answer is France. Both the United States and Mexico border the Pacific Ocean, but France does not.
