Which country has highest internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the world?

Answer: [A] Syria

Syria has highest internally displaced persons in the world. There are more than 50 million refugees and internally displaced people (IDPs) around the globe right now. Many of these people are concentrated in the Middle East and in particular in Iraq and Syria, where ISIS’s advance and the Syrian civil war have driven many people from their homes. A third of the world’s refugees come from those two nations alone. More than 9.5 million Syrians, or 43 percent of the Syrian population, are currently displaced.
