An international survey of young people in the US and other countries asked 56 questions about geography and current events. The organization’s survey discovered that about 87% of Americans could not place Iraq on the map. Americans could find on average only seven of the 16 countries in the quiz. Only 71% of the surveyed Americans could locate the Pacific Ocean, the world’s largest body of water.
