I'm not sure exactly what the analogy is for Manila... San Juan is the capital of Puerto Rico, but Luzon is not a political entity, so that's the wrong analogy. San Juan is the largest city on the island of Puerto Rico, but Manila is not the largest on Luzon (Quezon City is). Perhaps you're resting on "San Juan is the largest metro area on the island of Puerto Rico."

It's the logical answer. You could say that it's the largest urban areas on each island, if that makes you happy.

I love this site :) I was hesitant to point out it should be Quezon because I throught it would be too nitpicky, but then someone else already did :P Anyway I agressie with UMCPGreg, technically it should be Quezon, since that is the largest urban area on Luzon. Manila can be accepted though, because it is very nitpicky.

Same here. Then I figured it must mean an American state famous for growing potatoes. I had no idea, but I thought about it and tried Idaho. What the hell??!!

Death Valley isn't the hottest place on Earth. It's Al Aziziyah, Libya.

For nearly a century the Mediterranean city of El Azizia in northern Libya has held the official title for having been the hottest place on Earth ever recorded. But the world record was taken away on Thursday after an investigation by the World Meteorological Organisation found the measurement was probably bungled by someone who misread a thermometer. In striking out the Libyan record – after 90 years to the day – the title of the hottest ever place on Earth passes to Death Valley in California, where the temperature reached 56.7C in 1913, the WMO said.

The answer New Zealand seems wrong. The analogy was Yankee (resident of the US) to America (a continent or two) so for Kiwi (resident of NZ) the answer is difficult but Oceania would surely be closer?

I don't think any Aussies would take too kindly to being called kiwis! You are right though, it should be Yankee to USA to make it a correct analogy.

Must we explain this again? America is an accepted shortened name for the United States of America just as Australia is an accepted shortened name for the Commonwealth of Australia and China is an accepted shortened name for the People's Republic of China - I could go on with many, many more. The continents are North America and South America. I'm not a world traveler so I can't say for sure, but go anywhere in the world and tell someone you are an American and I believe they will think you are from the US, not Cuba, Panama, or Uruguay.

... except for people from those three countries and a number of others on the same continent(s). Trust, me they differentiate between "americano" and "norteamericano", which as a Canadian, always bugs me a bit.

The thing is, there is another question in this very quiz that uses United States to refer to the US. Because the Yankee question did not do the same, I assumed that was intentional, and that they really wanted us to assume a larger area. I'd be OK if both questions said US, or both said America, but having one be US and the other be America seems deliberately deceitful.
