For some reason I didn't expect Ecuador to be on this list. Got the others easily though.

Goes to show just how small most American countries' economies actually are.

Venezuela, no mission of it making the list if it was based on current figures.

These 10 countries also made it in the "Top 10 most populated countries in the Americas" and 9 of the countries here made it to the "Top 10 biggest countries in the Americas", which included Bolivia instead of Ecuador. Just goes to show that the Americas isn't a very diverse place when it comes to these 3 categories.

Surprised that Brazil's economy is nearly 4 X that of Argentina.

Actually just over 3x. Did you expect more or less? - Brazil population almost 5x.

In reality Brazil's economy is half as big as shown here. Due to a low cost of living, using PPP drastically inflates it.

By PPP, Mexico is a lot bigger than Canada! I guess 'us' still isn't counted for America, and Uruguay isn't the richest country in South America?

Similarly , the difference between the United States and Brazil is enormous.

Uruguay may be the richest per capita, but that is from its small population.

The quiz description says "name the countries with the largest GDPs in North and South America." It's unclear whether the countries or the GDPs are in the Americas - if the country has to be in the Americas, France should be on this list; it is (partially) in South America and it has a GDP of over 2 trillion. If the quiz only counts the GDP of the parts of the countries that are in the Americas, France should not be here, as the GDP of French Guiana is relatively tiny. You should probably add a caveat clearing up this issue. :)

most of the time it seems like France is considered to be in Europe, Turkey is considered Asia (Istanbul sometimes gets included in Europe), Russia typically gets counted as European, Kazakhstan as Asia, etc, even though all of these countries have territory on other continents. Territories are never included. And Cyprus is usually included with Asia.

I assume common sense on the part of the quiz taker. Adding caveats takes up space and removes attention from the other text.

Why not change the description to "Can you name the countries of North and South America with the largest GDPs?"

This way France which is in South America(French Guiana) is not counted as France is not a country of North and South America

By that logic, its a good thing Denmark's GDP is too low to be debated because Greenland is in North America. While I personally think Greenland should be counted as part of Denmark (it would make the quizes more fun because it's so different in terms of extremes), but I respect Quizmaster's decision to exlude it. It's his site, and that is the custom now. Same with French Guinea.
