To be honest, I had to look up #3 and #9 to write the quiz, and I stole #8 from another online test. I probably would have guessed #3 right, but the other two would have been a coin toss. So we'll say I got an 8/10.

I only missed #3 (I cynically guessed A...), but I think that's pretty good for not having debated or worked on the topic at all. Good quiz.

Mountainous terrain may have protected Italy during the 19th century but not the 20th.

 

It was brutally occupied by Mussolini's Italy from 1936 to 1941,[20] ending with its liberation by British Empire and Ethiopian Patriot forces.

 

Although perhaps it wasn't colonial occupation.

 

8/10
