a. Europe
b. Asia
c. North America
d. Africa

ANSWER: Europe
A recent US study found there were at least 46,000 accounts on Twitter linked to the militant group, many of which help to recruit new IS members. The European police agency “Europol” will now work with unnamed social media companies to track the accounts. They aim to get new accounts closed down within two hours of them being set up.
