River and country in Africa can be Congo

level 33

But the answer begins with 'N' since the quiz is about a word chain, and the previous answer was "Yemen." Therefore, Congo would be ruled out.

True, but in this specific puzzle, at least, it wouldn't work with the chain of letters (the word before it ends with "N", and the word after it begins with "R").

Halves are not usually equal. Tear your 1040 in half. Are they the same size?

Aug 29, 2018
That's a loose expression, and as such in no way should it be taken as an example of accurate measurement. 2 halves of the same thing are indeed equal by definition.

Hijab is not equivalent to a headscarf. You need to fix your clue. Hijab is modest dress for both men and women.

No, it's really not. Headscarf is a fair clue for hijab.
