it's kind of like the difference between a weed and a flower.. one is one or the other because conventional knowledge dictates so. But then... often Australia is identified as both an island and a continent, usually without any justification one way or the other.

Speaking for myself ......... and using several better brains than myself .... The Continental plate that Australia is a part of Includes Australia (including Tasmania), parts of New Guinea, New Zealand and a large portion of the Indian Ocean Basin. So if the Island of Australia is by itself the Continent, where do we put the remaining parts of the plate?

The "Z" was pretty easy, but misleading since Zanzibar is part of Tanzania, hence not "off the coast." (OK, so this would sound awkward, but perhaps "group of islands forming part of Tanzania"?)

What part of "off the coast" implies that it must be a seperate nation? A 'coast' is land bordering a body of water. Zanzibar most certainly lies "off the coast" of Tanzania.

This was a fun quiz, and some of the questions were certainly challenging. The thing I moat liked about it, though, was the way the interesting facts were inserted into the questions so that - regardless of whether you knew the answer or not - you felt as if you were learning interesting new facts as I went along.
