"Hoeveel provincies heeft Nederland?"

Translation:How many provinces does the Netherlands have?

April 3, 2015



Does anyone know whether "the Netherlands" should be considered as singular or plural? I personally think that both should be correct, but I have not been able to find proper evidence to back this up.


Well... How many?


The answer was 11 when I was originally taught this, not /that/ long ago. And it was even less in the more distant past too. The answers to questions like these change, just like 'How many planets in the solar system?' or 'Who is president of the US?'
