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 1913 Death Valley record is also wrong, IMO.

The legit record of 130° was set in 2020 (still in Death Valley).

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.

Is the term Yankee really for all US-Americans? I thought it was in relation to the New England area. I wouldn't call a Texan a Yankee. Maybe that's just me. But anyhow, 99% got the right answer so we all know what American means.

Generally, it is a term for all US-Americans, but it also originated in the time, when "all of the US=New England," so there is a place for a little ambiguity there. Plus during the Civil War, yankee was used only for Northerners, thus confusing things even further. But in relation to the whole world, I would say it can be used for all Americans.

I don't think it should be accepted. "Gorod" is more similar in meaning to town, castle is without a doubt "grad." But I guess it's a case of damned if you do, damned if you don't.

I couldn't work out why Sheikh wasn't accepted? Eventually tried Emir, but the leader of the royal family in Dubai is currently a Sheikh, not an Emir. In fact upon checking, the rulers of Dubai as far back as the 1800s have all been Sheikhs.
