Serbo-Croatian:
Serbian, Croatian, Bosnian, and Montenegrin

Serbo-Croatian is used primarily in the countries that made up the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia:
Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia.

Note that many native speakers consider these to be different languages and some find it offensive to treat them as one language.
Linguistically, they are commonly treated as variations of one language.
There's no "right" answer.
