Can You Pass This Geography Quiz?

If you’re stuck at home during Covid-19, it might be a good time to study up on your Atlas.

It’s geography quiz time.

What’s the westernmost state in America?

If you guessed Hawaii, you’re wrong. It’s Alaska.

How about the northernmost? Most of you get this one right. It’s also Alaska.

Here’s a tough one. What’s the southernmost state?

It’s not Florida, Texas or California. It’s Hawaii.

And the geography answer almost everyone gets wrong is the easternmost. It’s not Maine or Delaware. And don’t guess Puerto Rico because it’s not a state. So wait for it. It’s Alaska!

Alaska stretches so far west that it crosses the international dateline. Alaska is three of the four answers!
