I thought Roland Garros was the stadium the French Open was played in, not another name for it. Clue was kinda misleading.

It's both - in France, we never call it "French Open", which we think of as more of a "title".

The Figaro and the Monde are definitely not the best-selling newspapers. That is, neither in the whole country (Ouest France) nor on a local basis (le Parisien).

"Triumph" is acceptable but "Triomphe" (the spelling in the answer) isn't? I stopped taking the quiz at that point.

"Triomphe" has always been an acceptable answer. You typed it wrongly if it didn't work.

Perhaps surprisingly, the question about armless statues is a little ambiguous. There are at least two famous armless statues in France, and neither is more French than the other.

Nike of Samothrace was my first thought too, but the Venus is defenitely more iconic.

Technically, Stade de France isn't the biggest stadium in Paris since it's outside the city, in Saint-Denis. Therefore, Parc des Princes is the biggest stadium INSIDE Paris.
