Consider the following pairs:

Area of conflict mentioned in news       Country where it is located
1. Donbas : Syria
2. Kachin : Ethiopia
3. Tigray : North Yemen
How many of the above pairs are correctly matched?
(a) Only one
(b) Only two
(c) All three
(d) None

The correct answer is (d). None of the pairs are correctly matched.


  1. Donbas: Syria According to the information available, Donbas is not located in Syria. Donbas refers to a region in eastern Ukraine, particularly the areas of Donetsk and Luhansk, where there has been ongoing conflict between Ukrainian government forces and separatist groups. Therefore, this pair is not correctly matched.
  2. Kachin: Ethiopia Kachin is a region located in Myanmar (Burma), not Ethiopia. The Kachin State is situated in the northern part of Myanmar and is known for its ethnic Kachin population. There have been conflicts and tensions between the Kachin Independence Army and the Myanmar government. Hence, this pair is also not correctly matched.
  3. Tigray: North Yemen Tigray is indeed a region, and it is located in Ethiopia, not North Yemen. The Tigray Region in northern Ethiopia has been in the news due to a recent conflict that started in late 2020 between the regional government of Tigray and the Ethiopian federal government. Therefore, this pair is not correctly matched.
