No, the longest river in North America is the Missouri River, not the Mississippi. And which question isn't working? Is it the one about the number of states in the Louisiana Purchase? I just tried it, and it worked.

the tallest mountain in the world?!?!?!?! in the united states!?!!?!?! MT EVEREST IS IN NEPAL...........................

Mt Everest is the world's highest mountain, but it's not the world's tallest: http://geology.com/records/highest-mountain-in-the-world.shtml.
Jan 13, 2016
tallest and highest is the same thing!
Mar 20, 2016
no it isn't Mauna Kea starts waaaaaaay below sea level, while everest starts around sea level. Therefore, Everest reaches the highest point above sea level. If Mauna Kea was put at sea level, it would be taller than Everest

The Mississippi River is the longest in North America. The tallest mountain in the world is Mt. Everest. Get your facts right before starting a quiz.

I do have my facts straight. The longest river in North America is the Missouri: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missouri_River. The mountain with the highest elevation is Mt. Everest, but that's not the same as being the tallest: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_highest_mountains (4th paragraph under "Considerations").

The Mississippi River is the longest
Jul 18, 2015
100% with 20 seconds left as I finally figured it was Missouri NOT Mississippi. for all you naysayers the quiz author is correct on both the river length and the tallest mountain, the key is Mauna Kea has over half of its height underwater. nice quiz!

The most northerly continental US state is Alaska. By a long, long way.
Jun 18, 2016
several answers don't work. Missouri, Denali, Delaware, Alabama...not so sure about Mauna Kea being correct either.
Jul 27, 2016
Also Nebraska and New Mexico. Something wrong with the underlying tables here.

The Continental U.S is all the 48 contiguous states and Alaska. The Answer for the first one was Minnesota so you should change the question from Continental to Contiguous.
Jun 30, 2016
Isn't Maine farther north than Minnesota?
Feb 21, 2017
"Continental" by definition includes Alaska.....I think you meant "contiguous"....................but everyone else hush up.....minnesota is indeed further north than maine......the Missouri is in fact longer that the Mississippi......and Mauna Kea is in fact the tallest mountain on earth, with most of it below sea level......
