i know this comment is a billion years old, but does this mean that indonesia isn't an island because it borders 3 other countries? i think not.

indonesia isn't an island, but the entirety of its land is on the islands of Borneo, Sumatra, Java, Sualwesi, etc, thus it counts for this quiz

Level 27
Nov 28, 2020
Its not asking that the who island belongs to that country, its saying that the whole country is located on an island. Just because Ireland shares a border with the UK doesn't mean that all of Ireland is part of an island.

I was showing off to my sister that i could do the every country quiz and get them all right, and when we looked at the stats she was like how did only 99% of people get USA.

Technically, you should also add Aruba, Curacao and St. Maarten. They are part of the kingdom of the Netherlands, but there independent countries inside the kingdom, and they are all (on) islands.

I see Australia's status has changed. I read all the comments (again) expecting to see something about the change but there isn't anything. Seems like a good solution though to settle the debate. Is the number really area (Sq Km?) or population as it implies in the comments?
+1
Level 65
Dec 11, 2014
I'm gonna guess that it was listed by population previously and was changed to area so the static entry of Australia, now at the top of the list, would be less awkward.

Yes but it is not recognized widely. Niue and The Cook Islands are on Islands too, yet they are not widely recognized.
+1
Level 46
Nov 4, 2020
But again, Taiwan isn't recognized amply and still makes it this quiz. It's NOT a country. Like Macau or Hong Kong, it's an autonomus territory of China, such as Greenland for Denmark.

Well, in Jetpunk countries of the world, Taiwan is a country. Jetpunk usually considers Taiwan as a country, but others might have mixed opinions about Taiwan being a country or not.

It isn't a country - it is a British Crown dependency.

Level 25
Jan 15, 2015
What about Cyprus?
+1
Level 76
Jan 16, 2015
Cyprus doesn't count because it borders Dhekelia and Akrotiri, both part of the UK and therefore somehow not an island. Or maybe it does and you missed it ;-).
+1
Level 37
Nov 30, 2016
No man maybe an island, but Cyprus IS an ISLAND.
+1
Level 67
Dec 3, 2019
Cyprus is on the quiz. A common misconception is that the British Overseas Territories are integral parts of the United Kingdom, but they are not. They are British territories but not part of the UK. Even if they were (and they are not), it doesn't change the fact that Cyprus is entirely located on an island.

Sort of. As far as I know, at low tide there is some sort of land connection between India and Sri Lanka. Maybe.
+1
Level 67

Only after you have gone back a few centuries with a time machine. There a bits and pieces but nothing crossable no matter how low the tide is. That connection was severed in the 15th century.

as far as i know sri lanka is not an island it is a penninsula

To be fair, some quizzes consider a land border between India and Sri Lanka...
+1
Level 67
Nov 27, 2019
Yes and they are all wrong. Usually he does his research very well, but this error the quizmaster has made over and over. (I think even mentioning in comments that it had a landbridge, but that simply is not correct).

Good to see that in this quiz it is correct, hopefully the other quizzes are finally fixed now too. Errors spread like wildfire people think it is true because they have seen it somewhere then they are adamant to others so they believe it too. So very quickly 90% of the people (in a certain setting; school/community/country) can believe something that is totally incorrect.

That is why rumours are so nasty, once a lie is out there people have a hard time letting it go. Even with proof..

+1
Level 67
Dec 3, 2019
So? Sri Lanka is still entirely located on an island.

Level 58
Jan 24, 2016
Because if he didn't, people would argue about whether or not they had to answer it on the grounds that it's sometimes considered a continent in itself, which would make it not count as an island (otherwise everything is an island).

The land area of Ireland is only 85,000km2, Iceland is a lot bigger than Ireland at 103,000km2. Please correct this. they are not the same size.
+2
Level 52
Dec 21, 2016
Actually, since this quiz gives the area of the country, it should only be about 70,000 square km; 85,000 square km is the size of the entire island (which includes northern Ireland)

Wait a minute, East Timor is not an island because it is bordered with Indonesia in Timor Island
+3
Level 71
Apr 1, 2016
The quiz doesn't require the country to BE a full island by itself, it only needs the country to be entirely ON an island. As the whole of East Timor is on the Timor island (and no part of it is on a continent, as is the case for Malaysia or Denmark, for instance), it qualifies :).

An island nation should be one with no borders with other countries i.e. Iceland, because things like Indonesia aren't islands if they have borders like Papau New Guinea.

An island nation is not a nation that is also an island. It is a nation on one or more islands.

This was surprisingly hard, and I say this as a guy who knows his world geography. I really struggled to earn 5 points for this one, and it wasn't because of a lack of knowledge. Even if you know all 47, it gets quite hard when you've typed the first 40 or so and then your brain tries to figure out which ones you haven't typed yet.

Anyone else confused as to why UK, Ireland, Indonesia, East Timor, etc. are on this quiz? It says countries that are entirely islands, not countries that are not directly connected to a continent. When I read, "entirely islands," I interpreted that as countries that share no land border with another country. I guess I need to be more familiar with what an "island" is.

No, those are continents. Everything smaller than Greenland (or the same size) is an island. Everything bigger (Australia, Afro-Eurasia and America) is a continental Landmass.

Afro-Eurasia is not real. Africa is not connected to Asia due to the Suez Canal that separates the Sinai Peninsula from the rest of the Republic of Egypt, meaning that the Sinai Peninsula of Egypt is in Asia and the continents are not connected. Also Africa would therefore not be connected to any other continents.

Excellent quiz but there is one technical error given the rules set out by yourself: the UK is not a country entirely located on an island/s, since the British overseas possession of Gibraltar is part of the U.K. And Gibraltar has a land border with Spain. So the UK by that definition is not technically all on an island.
