Specifically it looks at asking questions aimed at finding simple information about one's locality. It is one of 50 quizzes to help you understand the world around you.

At school, you get asked lots of questions. Sometimes the answers are easy. Sometimes you have to go and find out the answers. Sometimes the teacher asks you to think of a question. In geography, to find information you need to ask questions. How do people live in different places and in different countries? What do different parts of the world look like? How do people travel about? Where are the world’s great oceans? This quiz is about finding answers to more simple questions. What questions would be good to ask about where you live, or your locality? How will you answer them?
