98% or 2%

So I got this little math trick in my email.  I figured out the first part because it involves math, but I can't figure out the second part.  Anyways, supposedly 98% off all people that do this answer with the same answers.  Lets give it a try, and go slowly because you don't want to miss any steps:

Think of a number from 1 to 10.

Multily that number by 9.

Now, if your answer is a two digit number, add the digits together.

Now subtract 5.

Determine which letter in the alphabet corresponds to the number you
ended up with

(example: 1=a, 2=b, 3=c,etc.)

Think of a country that starts with that letter.

Remember the last letter of the name of that country.

Think of the name of an animal that starts with that letter.

Remember the last letter in the name of that animal.

Think of the name of a fruit that starts with that letter

Are you thinking of a Kangaroo in Denmark eating an Orange?

If you are then supposedly you are like 98% of all of the people that do this.  I'm too sure about the statistics, but I can say that that's how I answered it!
