Although the Republic of Indonesia like to refer to the island of Borneo as Kalimantan their neighbouring countries, Malaysia (Sarawak, Sabah) and Brunei do not. But as this is an Indonesian island quiz I guess Kalimantan should be acceptable.

I'm Indonesian and ashamed that I missed three on my first try. Also, people in Indonesia refers to the whole new guinea island as 'papua'. And the country East of our border as 'Papua nugini'

This quiz has one of the biggest gaps between "easy" answers and "hard" answers that I've ever seen (I got all 7 easy ones and none of the hards). Good for 3 points :)

it's not New Guinea. It's Papua. New guinea is the country that's connected to Papua.
