Why? That would be referring to it as though it's a single mountain, which it isn't. Himalayas is the correct term.

Should be fine to accept it. No different than putting "Rocky Mountains" rather than "Rockies"

Gone with the Wind should also be accepted because it is the highest grossing according to inflation. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest-grossing_films

Could you accept "plancton" for plankton? I realise (now...) that this isn't the way it's spelled in English, but it's the way it's spelled in French, Spanish, Italian, and it could be construed as close enough to be accepted as an alternate spelling... Thanks!

I believe the question about the highest grossing movie might need to be changed to the new Star Wars movie. I read something the other day about it passing Avatar.

The answer for highest grossing movie should be Gone With The Wind or Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Depending on the answer, the question should be clarified to be based on inflation or not since based on inflation Avatar doesn't even crack the top 10.

No, because it asks for highest grossing. If the question was for highest grossing adjusted for inflation, that's what it would have said. Star Wars: The Force Awakens never passed #3 in either ranking.
