I could put down the answers I just found on Google and look brilliant - but that would SO be cheating.

Still, it's good to learn this stuff. Thanks for the quizzes jd.

Gesh! It is Viet Nam.....
The other three countries are Region B even if they are surrounded by Region A countries.

You see a black over yellow buoy with two triangle topmarks point up.... What is it and which side would you sail on??

North Cardinal buoy. The safe water is to the north of the buoy.

Bingo

All four share a similar historical characteristic. Any ideas?

A tougher principle.

In the lateral system which of the following takes precedence?

1) Following the general direction of buoyage.
2) Following the local direction of buoyage.

I'm pretty sure up-pointing triangles mean north (like on a compass?).
