Maybe say "Country where Lake Victoria drains into the Nile" because the Nile is also considered to flow into Lake Victoria in Tanzania. Other sources, though, state that Lake Victoria itself is the source of the Nile.

The Nile flows north because of the high elevation near the south of the nile, so it has no way of getting over them if the river goes south. It empties into the Mediterranean Sea.

It would be better to say 4,300 km long and 350 km wide. "Tall" refers to height, and I think Everest is less than 9 km tall.

Even though I agree that "tall" is not appropriate, I think it is obvious that no moutains are 4300km high...

Yes, the clue is giving the country's length & width, while the word "tall" indicates height. And despite 73% getting it right, the description is still mighty awkward.

Absolutely! - I doubt that "Tall" is ever used to describe a country's length.
