Wow, surprised myself at getting them all. Usually at least a few tossups in these T/F ones. Good stuff! I had the advantage of living in the northernmost state, so wasn't fooled by that. :-)

I find it ironic that the easternmost point in the US is "West" Quoddy Point. (Turns out, East Quoddy is on Campobello Island in Canada.)

Minnesota has a "northwest angle"... no border post between there and Canada.

Shouldn't it be Oman has a monarchy, unless the whole population is now in the monarchy? (Nitpick, I know)

I'm almost certain it's fine because a monarchy is also a system of government as well as the collective group of monarchs. You would say that "The US is a democracy", "North Korea is a dictatorship", so I'm pretty sure saying that Oman is a monarchy is fine too.

No, you're wrong. Monarchy is a system of government or a country (or other entity) with such system.

I found the question numbers 3, 13, 14 a bit irrelevant. These questions are more national based and not international general knowledge

Why are they any more "national based" than 1, 4, 9, 11, 16, 17 or 18?

Maps are misleading you. It's very hard to show a 3-D object on a 2-D projection, so it will be misleading. The latitude is key for this as opposed to using a map (even a map with lines of latitude will be hard to decipher though because the values are so close to each other; all states along the US-Canada border seem to be within two degrees of each other). According to an online interactive weather map, Washington to North Dakota is a maximum latitude of ~48.78* while Minnesota has a maximum of ~49.14* and Maine is ~47.29*.

Use the Prime Meridian, as it cuts down the middle of the earth...so the entire half that's to the left of the Prime Meridian would be the western hemisphere.

Since when is Norway an african country? As the first reply states, bouvet island is also in Antarctica and not Africa. By your logic the UK would be the most southernmost country and France the westernmost and easternmost country in Europe
