Get ready for an argument about Q.61, ManvsMini  😉

 

Feel free to PM me with your answer and we can discuss (as I don't know what you think the answer is)? Though it'll likely be Friday before I get back to you. If need be the question just becomes a wash.

Question 64:

 

Category: Archipelagos

 

What is the name of the group of almost 1,200 islands in the North Indian Ocean, of which only ~200 are inhabited?

 

 

 

EDIT: Since I'm switching to night shifts at work, timing for posting questions will change a bit. There will still be a question each day. And posting of answers will probably happen on either Sundays nights or Monday mornings. I'll know more after I've worked a couple weeks on the new schedule.
