Yes. Having meters too would be helpful.

helpful how? I mean, I know it's inclusive and all, but I just got 95% and didn't look at the heights once. Unless you have a depth of knowledge with specific mountain heights in meters that you happen to know, I don't know how it's helpful.

I can see that even if you don't know specific heights, it might be useful. Like I know that if it says of 6000 m plus it's gonna be one of the Andean countries or the USA, so if I'm missing a country over that threshold, I can pretty quickly work out which one. I know Mount Blanc is under 5000 m, so if I'm missing any over 5000 m, I don't need to try and think of countries in Western Europe.

No, it shouldn't. It won't help at all. I didn't look at the feet once, mainly because I don't know anything of mountains, and I still got 17 of them. Unless you are a mountain expert, or a die hard geography nerd, the heights won't help you at all.

Yes, please add metres. That way we can learn heights if we didn't know them before. Alternatively, take the feet off and have no measurements (not better, but fairer). @Triviamaster2: some people on here *are* die hard geography nerds.

Meters would definitely help a lot of us. The percentage of people using feet is smaller than those using meters, the metric system is much more widespread, just saying.

Very helpful. I'm sure there are plenty of people (myself included) that have never measured in feet but always measure in metres (as well as shorter and longer versions of metres, such as centimetres, millimetres, kilometre, etc.).

Metres would have helped me as well as I can estimate the hight of the Andes, Alps, Kilimanjaro, etc. Strange that the Americans kicked out the British but kept their "imperial" system in place and now are one of three countries in the world not using the metric system.

I didn't use the heights, I just thought about which countries have high mountain ranges. However, judging by the number of comments here, some people do look at the heights and it's not exactly going to have the heights in the system used in the vast majority of the world.

Well, whether people think it's helpful or not, I see no harm in adding the height in meters. I personally competed the quiz without using the height information (partly because I'm European and I'm not used to the feet scale), but I would find interesting to have that information in order to learn something, if nothing else. I don't understand why some people feel so strongly against adding the height in meters...

If it includes height, it should be meters (or both to help stone age part of the world). However I enjoyed doing it without looking at the elevation, it definitely adds challenge.

Because the whole island of new guinea is part of the continent Australia (for those who comment about Oceania, there's no such thing as Oceania being a continent, try to search it first before commenting). And the western part of the new guinea island is part of indonesia.

I find funny that these types of quizzes have a bunch of people whining that the height should be in metres, or meters, yet nobody whines when the area in country quizzes is miles or kilometers.

Great Quiz. Struggled on the last one then noticed it was the same height as another and the point must be on the border.

The dropoff in people who got Papua New Guinea compared to everything else is astonishing. Guess people think it's Asian, or else just don't think of its mountains as tall.

If you really want the height in meters just divide by ten the multiply by three. For instance 14793 (Papua New Guinea) divided by ten is easy, just move the decimal. 1479.3 (You could round at this point to make it easier.) 1479.3 * 3 = 4437.9 (or 1480 * 3 = 4440 (or 1500 * 3 = 4500)

Imagine if Russia wasn't an answer because it's technically in Asia and Europe. It'd be pretty smart thinking not to include it IMO.

I'm surprised that the DRC has such a high peak. I'm also surprised that more people guessed the DRC than Ethiopia, that place is practically made of mountains.

Good quiz, the only one I didn’t get was PNG which i would never have guessed. I always thought it was just flat jungle
