You should accept Himalaya...

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

I'm sure there's a simpler term than that for an animal that's been commonplace as long as people have been using language in England.
I doubt fisherman who have generation upon generation on the water spit out a convoluted modern term coined by a desk jockey and say, "over there by that great northern diver".

Yeah, just "diver". In exactly the same way that they wouldn't bother to say "great black-backed gull" when just "gull" would do.

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.

Nope! Eventually it will be surpassed, but it hasn't yet as of April 2019.

Only if you are looking exclusively at domestic box office. Worldwide, Avatar has a huge huge lead, and in fact Star Wars isn't even #2 - that spot is being held on to by another James Cameron film: Titanic.

I feel like Endgame is probably going to overtake The Force Awakens soon, pushing it to number 3. It might also overtake Titanic, becoming the first non-Cameron film to gross more than Titanic since 1997! Incredible how long The Boat has stayed afloat. But it's doubtful that it will touch Avatar's $2.78 billion.

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.

You might want to change the question about Waterloo to reference the Waterloo in which Napoleon was famously defeated. There is a town of Waterloo in Ontario, Canada (which I actually thought of first).

That's why it asks for the original Waterloo.
