But it is more than reasonable to allow the name of the country in the language of that country. After all, that IS the right answer, not an English translation.

Jul 3, 2018
This quiz is in the English Language and therefore the answers not surprisingly are in English. Likewise if I go on a French Language quiz I expect (and am proved correct) that the answers are in French e.g. In a World Countries in French Language the answer for Ireland is 'Irlande' not Eire or Ireland ....
+5
level 51
Jul 20, 2018
Hardly any people speak Irish. If you allow "Eire," you might as well allow the Polish for Ireland because there are about 200,000 native Polish speakers while there are only about 100,000 Irish speakers.

USA is listed as 71 degrees North. The lower 48 stops at the so-called "49th Parallel", so the part of the USA which makes it count on this quiz is undoubtdedly Alaska.

Some of the claims on these quizzes seem a little far fetched at times. Somebody claimed to do this one in 31 seconds. Really? I mean come on, seriously! Even if I had the list of countries right in front of me it would be a trick to type all 20 in 31 seconds.
+1
level 51
Jul 20, 2018
I did it in 41 seconds and I wasn't even typing that quickly. It depends on your typing speed and knowledge of the latitudes of countries. It's not that surprising considering the amount of geography fanatics here on JetPunk.

@Silver, in this case it doesn't. @kalbahamut, I would be interested to have a reference to a textbook that says a comparative is the same thing as a superlative (an English one, as I know they are in some languages). A superlative is an adjective or adverb describing the highest degree of something, whereas a comparative describes one thing as having a greater degree of a certain quality than another.

Holland is not a country. North Holland and South Holland are provinces IN the Netherlands.

+1
level 51
Jul 20, 2018
There's a difference between shortening the name of a country in the name of simplicity and just including regions and provinces as type-ins. If Holland were allowed, the amount of arguments for each of the 50 states to be type-ins and for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland to be type-ins for their respective sovereign states would be astronomical.

Quiz suggestion: Find out what the latitude of the average square mile in a country is in relation to the North pole. Then, use this info to make a quiz. I would not know how to do this, so I'll give my idea to you.
+1
level 22
Oct 16, 2017
Would be very challenging, and you'd need to decide which square miles/kms you would use. A quicker option would be to find the latitude of the exact centre of each country (similar to its pole of inaccessibility).
+1
level 52
Sep 4, 2018
There are a few ways to define the exact centre of a country. You can find the point inside it furthest from a border or coastline (in maths this is called the incentre). Alternatively you can try to find a centre of mass (centroid) assuming an equal distribution of mass. This will heavily depend on what you count (e.g. including French Guiana as part of France will move the centroid possibly into Spain?)

So everybody seems to accept Ukraine is that far north as to make it on this quiz?! It's on the damn Black Sea, which makes it practically Mediterranian! Took me a bit to guess that one. And still it makes it further north than Mongolia. Yep, signing up for club "Mongolia, you are further north than that, right?".
+1
level 71
Feb 17, 2017
What kind of logic is this? USA and China are partly in the tropics, and Russia is on the Black Sea/Mediterranean as well. Ukraine is not that small and despite having nice warm beaches in summer, it has evry cold winters.

I think part of the confusion is that the Mediterranean is further north than one would think. NYC is south of Rome, and the beaches at Odessa are further north than Minneapolis or Montreal.

I got them all, but a map really messes up your perception of north/south. I was convinced that Ukraine is farther south than Japan, North Korea, Mongolia, South Korea, and even Mexico.

Go to Google Maps. Right click on the northernmost point in the Ukraine and left click 'What's here?'. It will display the latitude (the first number). You will notice that Ukraine's northernmost point is north of Mongolia's.

I live in Manchester, which is on the same latitude. The other side of the problem is having to get up before the sun rises in winter. I've never really noticed much difference in other countries I go to, possibly because I more often go on holiday in August (where there isn't as much difference), possibly because the furthest south I've been is only around 35°N, and possibly because I get up later on holiday anyway.

I love all the people disputing the answers to this, especially the 'But Mongolia is north of China!' crowd. Objectively that is not the case, Manchuria, specifically Heilongjiang, is more northerly. If you really don't believe it, Google Maps or Google Earth can display the latitude of any point. It's very easy to check.

I never really look at both sides of Asia at the same time, and think to myself to compare how high up Belarus, the Ukraine or Kazakhstan comes compared to the likes of Mongolia, Japan or South Korea... I could eventually figure out everything here - but I tried a lot of wrong things first.

I think you need to specify which definition of 'northernmost' you mean. It became clear from the answers that it must be based on how far the northernmost point of the country is, but 'northernmost' can also be defined by things like how far north the country's median latitude is or how far north its southernmost point is, or how far north the population is on average, and it was not clear from the title which of these many definitions was intended.
