Answers to which is the smallest of the seven seas

The phrase "Seven Seas" (as in the idiom "sail the Seven Seas") can refer either to a particular set of seven seas or to a great expanse of water in general. Different time periods have used different definitions of the phrase "Seven Seas".

In Medieval European literature, the Seven Seas referred to the following seas:
the Black Sea
the Caspian Sea
the Persian Gulf
the Red Sea

the Mediterranean Sea, including its marginal seas, notably the Adriatic Sea (which is listed separately among the Seven Seas) and the Aegean Sea.

the Indian Ocean or the Arabian Sea (which is part of the Indian Ocean)

The International Hydrographic Organization lists over 100 bodies of water known as seas.

Smallest Sea
There is disagreement over the extent of many seas, and some “seas,” particularly the small ones in Japanese coastal waters, do not always receive recognition. Different geographers recognize between 70 and 90 seas in all. The smallest is often said to be the Sea of Marmara, between the Aegean and Black seas in Turkey. Despite its small area of 4,382 square miles, the Sea of Marmara is relatively deep, reaching down as far as 4,446 feet.
