Stuck on PNG/UAE for waaay longer that I should've been. Couldn't think how PNG is related to Guinea...

Yeah, I massively overthought that one. Took me ages to realise it was basically just asking what the final letter stood for.

Well, this was unexpectedly easy. Oh, and there is no final "s" in Marseille ;).

I don't feel the PNG/Guinea one works very cleanly ... there is a distinct other country named Guinea, while there is not one named Emirates.

It actually does make sense. "Guinea" is that last word of Papua New Guinea just as "Emirates" is the last word of United Arab Emirates. I struggled with this analogy a lot as well because I was looking for a geographic or historical relationship between PNG and Guinea. When I finally tried the right answer, I realized that the analogy is based on the words, not the geography.

I think that's what makes it a good question - have to think a bit differently

I was thinking of the island of Guinea, so I tried Arabia for UAE because it's on the Arabian Peninsula. Took me ages too to figure out the correct answer.

It is on the island of New Guinea, anyway.

Yes, I struggled over this one almost 2 seconds. Then I figured it out. As Pen says, it's analogies.

Columbia refers to the river, not the country.
+1
level 62
Jul 27, 2019
Yes, this is what helped me! When I realised Columbia was not the country, I figured it meant a river in USA somewhere. I knew Aswan was on the Nile.

This one completely got me, I have never heard of Grand Coulee or Colombo as a river so tried every country around Egypt until time ran out.

I don't think that Chateau and castle go together. A castle is far more of a fortified home that usually houses royalty where as a chateau is more the equivalent of a manor house.
+1
level 61
Aug 4, 2016
I agree. Palace to château is a better analogy, as in Buckingham Palace to Château de Versailles.
+5
level 49
Aug 4, 2016
Yes, but various English connotations aside, the French word for castle is "château", while the French word for palace is "palais". The analogy is accurate.

There are plenty of things called "castle" in English which aren't really castles. Dublin Castle and Oxwich Castle to name two off the top of my head. Often they're on the site of former fortified castles and turned into more like a chateau.

There is a Portuguese island in the middle of the Atlantic called Madeira too. But I think Azores is more correct being an archipelago rather than a single island.

Actually, Madeira is also an archipelago.

I think Cairo is a better fit than Giza in the analogy . It should be accepted . If you were going to be picky shouldn't it be Staten Island to Statue of Liberty ?

But the Sphinx isn't in Cairo, it is in Giza. But I see your point.

Giza is the third largest city in Egypt.
+1
level 46
Jul 27, 2019
No, because Staten Island is part of New York City, while Giza is officially a different city than Cairo. I do think Cairo should be accepted, though, because Giza is basically just a suburb of Cairo.

since coffee originated in Ethiopia the answer Afghanistan is subjective as is the premise i tried China which must be one correct answer also UK would also be valid and correct as would half the asian countries in the world ,

That question is about which country is producing the most. Brazil is leading in coffee production and Afghanistan is leading in Opium production.
