Which country was formerly named Rhodesia?

Sudan
Nigeria
Argentina

Ini­tial­ly, the ter­ri­to­ry was referred to as "South Zam­bezi­a", a ref­er­ence to the River Zambezi, until the name "Rhode­si­a" came into use in 1895 (after Cecil Rhodes, whose British South Africa Company acquired the land in the late 19th cen­tu­ry). In 1980, the country name was changed to Zim­bab­we.
