The answer to the last question is wrong. The UK passed the Slavery Abolition Act in 1833.

Britain as an entity wasn't founded till 1707 so how could its first maritime expeditions be in the 15th century.

10/13 -This was a challenging quiz, but worth the effort. All my research indicates that Ireland was England's 1st overseas colony - you might want to check this out.

The name in Question 06 is NOT Ghandi,but Gandhi, Mahatma Gandhi. Please be careful about the names of public figures of other countries.

Q1. The concept of 'Britain' or 'Empire' didn't exist in the 15th century.

Jack Hannan, you are correct; even though the question called for 'England's first colony'.

Jack Hannan : You're right - but the question was "first overseas colony," so maybe they were counting Ireland as part of Europe ... ???
