    1.How many islands are within Indonesia? : Counting them is an ill-defined task. Estimated put them at 30000 though. Sunda archipelago is (that is its name) the largest with some of the biggest islands in it each bigger than any of a dozen European countries - New Guinea [2ᶯ ͩ ], Borneo [3 ͬ ͩ ], Sumatra [6 ͭ ͪ ], Sulawesi [11 ͭ ͪ ], Java [13 ͭ ͪ ]. Great Britain is 8 ͭ ͪ.

    2.How many seas are among the islands of Indonesia?: South China, Banda, Timor, Java, Sulu, Flores, Sulawesi, Ceram Seas & straits of Malacca that is virtually a gulf, Makassar strait, Molucca passage, Teluk Irian as well as the bays & gulfs of the funnily (K) shaped Sulawesi island (Telik s Tomoni, Tolo, Bono). I wonder whether God knew Latin alphabet when shaping the islands Sulawesi & Halmahera or how the Latins knew these island shapes while inventing letter - K !
