The question about the desert is misleading at best. There should a distinction between Subtropical and Non-Polar Deserts.

A desert isn't defined by its sand and the Gobi Desert is primarily, if not entirely, temperate but you wouldn't think twice about calling it a desert. I think the question is fine as is.

Yes. The criteria for a desert is about how barren it is and the lack of precipitation; not the amount of sand. The question is fine.

I agree - question is fine. I tried a few sandy deserts first, but did come up with the answer eventually. More challenging clues are good, IMHO.

The giveaway is that the Sahara is "second" meaning they are counting things which aren't usually considered deserts, aka Antarctica. Sahara is traditionally the largest desert.

For the Bikini Atoll question, I tried bombs, nukes, nuclear weapons, nuclear warfare, and many other variations of the same idea. Instead of adding more type-ins, I recommend that you rewrite the question to get a more specific answer.

What? "Et tu, Brute?" obviously doesn't mean "Now fall, Caesar!" It means "You [betrayed me] too, Brute?"

In Shakespeare's Julius Caesar, his last words are actually this complete sentence: "Et tu Brute? Then fall Caesar!". The second part means Caesar understands that his death is unavoidable if even Brutus has betrayed him.
