Which European language is Finnish most closely related to?

Swedish
Estonian
Hungarian
None
Finnish is not an Indo-European language. It is (together with Estonian) a member of Finnic group, which itself belongs to the Uralic family. Estonian and Finnish are not mutually intelligible, although many words and the grammar are similar, so people can typically understand written texts in the other language to some extent (similarly to Portuguese and Spanish).
