Explanation:

[STC00565] The land size of Puerto Rico is around 3,515 square miles, which means that if it were a state in the United States, it would be the third smallest. Connecticut, which has a total land area of 5,543 square miles, would come in just ahead of it. Both Delaware (1,982 square miles) and Rhode Island are dwarfed in comparison to the size of Puerto Rico (1,214 square miles). Though it would be a tiny state, Puerto Rico is the largest of the U.S. territories — beating the Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands, American Samoa, and Guam. And in terms of population, Puerto Rico ranks higher than 21 other states in the Union with its 3.2 million citizens, which is almost the same amount as the state of Utah.
