My second question on the test referred to Devonshire, which I assumed to be feminine.

After taking the test, I found an explanation that all English countries ending in shire are masculine, but I don't believe it was mentioned in the material of the lesson before the test. If I'm correct that is was not explained beforehand, it doesn't seem like a good question.

This question relates to:
French lesson "En, dans = In, to with regions, states, counties (prepositions)"

It's mentioned in one of the articles about the gender of countries, but not in all of them. It is a little silly if they happen to give you the articles out of order and you just happen to miss that one...
