Seems like there's a better way to clue what's being asked for. Great Britain, British Isles, and Europe all seem to be perfectly reasonable answers to the question.

"In the Harry Potter universe, what is the name for the people who can't use magic?"

Because of the new movies I would suggest either accepting "Nomag" as well, or changing the question itself to "In the Harry Potter universe, what is the British name for the people who can't use magic?"

*shudders at the thought that there could be Harry Potter fans familiar with the term "Nomag" but not "Muggle"*

Also the term "squib" should be accepted. Pottermore states that they're incapable of using magic, similar to muggles

I immediately thought of muggles but agreed, squib is also correct. A more difficult question with squib as the only correct answer might be, "In the HP universe, what does one call a wizard-born Muggle?"

The answer to the Harry Potter question is NOT muggle. Hermione was a muggle, but she could do magic. Muggles are simply normal people from "non-magical" families. The correct answer is squib. Squibs are unable to do magic.

Erroneous! Hermione was Muggle-born. She was not a Muggle.

I feel dirty even bringing this up, but Dame Rowling hath ruled from on high that “Nomaj” is also a synonym for muggles.
