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.

Same, I thought if you would refer to the island as "Guinea", which one usually does not, UAE could then relate to the Arabian peninsula or even the Afro-Eurasian landmass. But no.

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.

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.

I agree. Palace to château is a better analogy, as in Buckingham Palace to Château de Versailles.

Not really. A palace in french is a palais. A palais is the equivalent of a manor house. A château is commmonly used for a fortified home but also for a manor house. For example, you have the châteaux de la Loire which are more like manor houses but also the château de Bonaguil which is clearly a defensive structure, more like a fortified home.

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.
