We can tell you who the smartest Arab nation is - unless you’re smart enough to guess?!

A person’s intelligence is measured in a number of ways, most commonly by taking the famous intelligence quotient (IQ) test. However, emotional intelligence plays a big part in determining how clever a person is.

“Russia Today” shared an infographic on Thursday, which ranks Arab nations according to their intelligence.

However, the results are based on a study carried out between 2002-2006 by English psychologist Richard Lynn and Finnish sociologist Tatu Vanhanen.

The study included 80 countries, with Hong Kong ranking in first place, directly followed by Singapore then South Korea in third place.

And now, we present to you the smartest Arab nations - in order of smartest:

1. Iraq
2. Kuwait
3. Yemen
4. Jordan
5. Morocco
6. Saudi Arabia
7. United Arab Emirates
8. Algeria
