Question five is technically incorrect ... Chrismas Island comes under Australian rule and Australia is still a commonwealth country with the British queen being the Australian queen and represented there by a governor-general ...

emabroad, Yes but As an imperial statute, the Slavery Abolition Act liberated less than 50 enslaved Africans in British North America. For most enslaved people in British North America, however, the Act resulted only in partial liberation, as it only emancipated children under the age of six, while others were to be retained by their former owners for four to six years as apprentices.

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.
