Good morning. Seychelles and Mauritius both use rupees as their currency, and both are more southern than Sri Lanka.

Aren't the Canary Islands more southern than Greece?

If I'm not mistaken those would not classify as overseas territories as they have the same status as all the other Autonomous Communities on the Iberian peninsula. Or perhaps you're counting that part of Spain as actually being part of Africa??

Thanks!

Canary Islands are a part of Spain in the same way that Hawaii is part of the US

Exactly. That's a good comparison for all the Americans lol.

So my question still stands. Is it because the Canary Islands are being considered part of Africa? To continue your analogy, it would be much like how one may consider Hawaii to be a part of Oceania rather than N. America

Though buck1017 brings up a good point in a comment below as France is even more southernly. Though the argument that that isn't European territory but rather S. America is much stronger.

French Guiana enters the chat after all the times it's used as a trick question in South America as an integral part of France.

So how is France explained away as not being the southernmost European country. Since French Guyana is in South America does it not count as being part of Europe even though it's part of France, which IS European? I was trying to get tricky with that one and first put Spain because some of it is in Africa, then i tried France.

1. They're not departments

Australia's southernmost point is at the Bishop and Clerk Islets off Macquarie Island, Tasmania at 55⁰03'S. As noted, Macquarie Island is part of the State of Tasmania, and not an overseas territory. This causes issues for both the third and fourth questions.

Angola actually withdrew its OPEC membership January 1st of this year, so I think the right answer should be the Republic of the Congo instead.
