I believe it's either a Tsar or a Czar. I'm pretty sure it's only Ts or Cz. I don't think Tz or Cs are correct. Since it's a quiz where everything starts with T, that leaves Tsar as the only answer.

The academic study of geography is quite a bit broader than just locations on a map. Climate, crops, culture, people, language, religion, etc are all included. Pretty much anything that is interesting or unique about any given location falls into the category.

It was one of the mythical double lands from the first editions. The Taiga was a forest and a mountain combined. BTW, Tundra (also in this test) was a double land too. A plain and an island.

Lands are a vital component of the game and they're always printing more so I've learned names for all sorts of obscure ecozones.

The five basic lands are Island, Forest, Plains, Swamp, and Mountain.
But then the ten original dual lands, which are the best such lands ever printed in the game and so remain valuable and relevant to this day, were U/B Underground Sea, U/W Tundra, U/R Volcanic Island, U/G Tropical Island, W/B Scrubland, W/R Plateau, W/G Savannah, B/R Badlands, B/G Bayou, and G/R Taiga.

To Donna: If your teacher taught you that Tzar, Czar and Csar are all correct, she should have been fired as incompetent. its TSAR or CZAR. Anyone taking the time to open a dictionary can be so informed.

As I said above, plenty of English dictionaries do have tzar (inter alia). Perhaps you ought to take the time and effort to look up in a decent dictionary rather than be snarky.

I'm surprised only 35% Taiga while 77% got Tundra right. I vaguely remember learning about them at the same time back in high school but I guess other countries might structure their lesson plans differently.
