@ magnum
I think the answer of the Q.No. 20 is wrong. Its A geoid. Correct me if I am wrong.

Your solved msq no.7 of 2007 is wrong. The answer is formerly Yugoslavia. There is karst region in the country. Now the country is divided into Serbia and Montenegro.

Try not to become a man of success but a man of value.
