Pair 1 is correctly matched. Catalonia is an autonomous community in northeastern Spain. It has its own distinct culture, language (Catalan), and history. Catalonia has been a subject of discussion and news due to its aspirations for greater autonomy or even independence from Spain.

Pair 2 is incorrectly matched. Crimea is not part of Hungary, but rather a peninsula located in the northern coast of the Black Sea. It is internationally recognized as part of Ukraine, although it has been subject to a territorial dispute between Ukraine and Russia.

Pair 3 is correctly matched. Mindanao is the second-largest and southernmost major island in the Philippines. It is known for its diverse ethnic and cultural groups, including Muslim-majority areas. Mindanao has been in the news due to ongoing conflicts and issues related to separatist movements and political unrest in the region.

Pair 4 is incorrectly matched. Oromia is not in Nigeria. Oromia is actually a region located in Ethiopia. It is the largest region in terms of both land area and population in Ethiopia.
