What’s the Quiz About?

Absent Letter Countries II asks you to click countries in alphabetical order. The only problem is that the first letter of each country is missing, turning Uruguay into Ruguay. This means that you have to figure out what each country should be before clicking. To make it even more challenging, this quiz is a minefield and you only have 2 minutes to complete it.

Don’t get too overwhelmed, though. Each letter of the alphabet is only used once, so if you find the one that should have an ‘A’ at the beginning, there’s no need to worry about another ‘A’ country, you can just click it and start looking for ‘B.’ However, not every letter is used in this quiz, there are only 20 countries to alphabetize, so if you can’t find a specific letter, move on to the next one.
