Backup Quiz Round 2

This is the second round I put together as a backup quiz for a friend of mine. This round is another of the pub quiz staples, Geography. Sooner or later you will get a Geography round and it is bound to get a moan from some people around the room, but personally I enjoy them. As always, you can never please everybody. This is a relatively straightforward quiz with a local question thrown in for the fun of it. I would expect 4 out of 5 is a very do-able score for this round.

Question 1: Which is the longest river in Europe?
The River Volga at 3,690 km (2,290 mi), The River Danube is in 2nd place at 2,860 km (1,780 mi)

Question 2: Situated in Italy, what is Stromboli?
A Volcano

Question 3: Is the tropic of Cancer in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere?
Northern Hemisphere

Question 4: In Sussex, which is further North, Upper Dicker or Lower Dicker?
Lower Dicker

Question 5: Which mountain range straddles Morocco and Algeria?
Atlas Mountains

I didn’t list any sources for this round again, but it should be easy to discover. For Upper and Lower Dicker I just looked at a map, if you don’t happen to have a map of Sussex to hand, then Open Street Map should be able to help.
