NO SOVEREIGN COUNTRIES BEGIN WITH WHICH TWO LETTERS?


Here is the option for the question :

  • Q & X
  • O & Z
  • X & W
  • O & W

The Answer:

And, the answer for the the question is :

X & W

Explanation:

[STC002295] There are still a few countries whose names begin with some of the less common letters in the alphabet, such as Yemen, Qatar, and Zimbabwe. However, the letters ‘X’ and ‘W’ are not allowed. The letter W is exclusively used to head off countries that are located within the borders of other sovereign countries, such as Wales, which is located within the borders of the United Kingdom. The letter ‘X’ may come first in the names of several of the world’s regions and towns, but it is never the first letter of the names of any countries. So, until West Xylophone becomes a sovereign nation, the lonely letters will remain at the bottom of the heap.
