Quiz: QUIZ: ExxonMobil

Question 2 of 5

In 2005, ExxonMobil reported earnings larger than the gross domestic product of what former OPEC nation?

  1. Gabon
  2. Indonesia
  3. Malaysia
  4. Norway
Correct!

2005 was a particularly good year for ExxonMobil. They reported $371 billion in revenue, an amount greater than the gross domestic product of Indonesia, which came in at a lackluster $245 billion. The Southeast Asian country, which has a population of 242 million people, is the fourth most populated nation on earth. It was a member of OPEC until its status changed from a net exporter of oil to a net importer, prompting its 2008 withdrawal from the powerful cartel.
