The New York Times rated Cachacas with Agricole Rums because they were so similar. I would consider your answer wrong.
I've known, for a long time that rum came from other places. I read about it in high school. it was mentioned in American History during the Revolutionary War.
I don't know where the previous comment went... but it was wrong: While some countries [USA, duh] have considered Cachaça as rum, it doesn't make a lot of sense to do so- yes it is definitely made from a sugar-cane product, but it is produced very different: it doesn't need to be aged in oak [in fact the more traditional cachaças are either way unaged or aged in Brazilian rainforest wood], it is distilled to a lower alcohol percentage [usually about 55% while rum is distilled above 70%] - and rum is distilled from Molasses. And Brazil is known to produce cachaça, but they certainly also produce real rum!
I would even argue, that Rhum Agricole isn't really a rum - on Martinique and Guadeloupe, where they distill Rhum Agricole, they also distill Rhum Industrielle - and this is the "real" rum [made from molasses].
Your rum quiz is incorrect. As of April 11, 2013, the TTB recognized Cachaça as a type of rum.
