Correct Answer - Option 2 : Africa

The correct answer is Africa.

  • The Sahara is the world's largest desert.
    • It extends across most of the northern part of Africa.
  •  The Sahara is the largest hot desert in the world, and the third-largest desert behind Antarctica and the Arctic, which are both cold deserts.
    • The Sahara is one of the harshest environments on Earth, covering 3.6 million square miles (9.4 million square kilometers), nearly a third of the African continent, about the size of the United States (including Alaska and Hawaii).
    • The name of the desert comes from the Arabic word ṣaḥrāʾ, which means "desert."
    • The Sahara is bordered by the Atlantic Ocean on the west, the Red Sea on the east, the Mediterranean Sea on the north, and the Sahel Savannah on the south.
    • The enormous desert spans 11 countries: Algeria, Chad, Egypt, Libya, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Niger, Western Sahara, Sudan, and Tunisia.
